Detailed Documentation

An API of plugin to be implemented by a plugin.

Typedefs

typedef std::shared_ptr<IInferencePlugin> Ptr

A shared pointer to IInferencePlugin interface.

Methods

void SetVersion(const Version& version)

Sets a plugin version.

Parameters:

version

A version to set

const Version& GetVersion() const

Gets a plugin version.

Returns:

A const InferenceEngine::Version object

virtual std::string GetName() const

Provides a name of a plugin.

Returns:

The name.

virtual void SetName(const std::string& name)

Sets a name for a plugin.

Parameters:

name

The name

virtual std::shared_ptr<IExecutableNetworkInternal> LoadNetwork(
    const CNNNetwork& network,
    const std::map<std::string, std::string>& config
    )

Creates an executable network from an pares network object, users can create as many networks as they need and use them simultaneously (up to the limitation of the HW resources)

Parameters:

network

A network object acquired from InferenceEngine::Core::ReadNetwork

config

A string-string map of config parameters relevant only for this load operation

Returns:

Created Executable Network object

virtual std::shared_ptr<IExecutableNetworkInternal> LoadNetwork(
    const CNNNetwork& network,
    const std::map<std::string, std::string>& config,
    const std::shared_ptr<RemoteContext>& context
    )

Creates an executable network from network object, on specified remote context.

Parameters:

network

A network object acquired from InferenceEngine::Core::ReadNetwork

config

string-string map of config parameters relevant only for this load operation

context

A pointer to plugin context derived from RemoteContext class used to execute the network

Returns:

Created Executable Network object

virtual std::shared_ptr<IExecutableNetworkInternal> LoadNetwork(
    const std::string& modelPath,
    const std::map<std::string, std::string>& config
    )

Creates an executable network from model file path.

Parameters:

modelPath

A path to model

config

A string-string map of config parameters relevant only for this load operation

Returns:

Created Executable Network object

virtual void AddExtension(const std::shared_ptr<IExtension>& extension)

Registers extension within plugin.

Parameters:

extension

  • pointer to already loaded extension

virtual void SetConfig(const std::map<std::string, std::string>& config)

Sets configuration for plugin, acceptable keys can be found in ie_plugin_config.hpp.

Parameters:

config

string-string map of config parameters

virtual Parameter GetConfig(
    const std::string& name,
    const std::map<std::string, Parameter>& options
    ) const

Gets configuration dedicated to plugin behaviour.

Parameters:

name

  • value of config corresponding to config key

options

  • configuration details for config

Returns:

Value of config corresponding to config key

virtual Parameter GetMetric(
    const std::string& name,
    const std::map<std::string, Parameter>& options
    ) const

Gets general runtime metric for dedicated hardware.

Parameters:

name

  • metric name to request

options

  • configuration details for metric

Returns:

Metric value corresponding to metric key

virtual std::shared_ptr<RemoteContext> CreateContext(const ParamMap& params)

Creates a remote context instance based on a map of parameters.

Parameters:

params

The map of parameters

Returns:

A remote context object

virtual std::shared_ptr<RemoteContext> GetDefaultContext(const ParamMap& params)

Provides a default remote context instance if supported by a plugin.

Parameters:

params

The map of parameters

Returns:

The default context.

virtual std::shared_ptr<IExecutableNetworkInternal> ImportNetwork(
    const std::string& modelFileName,
    const std::map<std::string, std::string>& config
    )

Creates an executable network from an previously exported network.

Deprecated Use ImportNetwork(std::istream& networkModel, const std::map<std::string, std::string>& config)

Parameters:
