OpenCV 3.3 setNumThreads(0) bug

asked 2017-09-22 09:45:15 -0500

I can produce this, only in OpenCV 3.3, only when using the pthreads parallel framework.

First If I setNumThreads (3) then, I change this value to setNumThreads (0), then I change the value again to setNumThreads (3), then the last action has no effect, and application using one thread. In general, after I set the value of setNumThreads (0), all future changes to setNumThreads() do not give an effet.

test code for produce:

#include <opencv2/opencv.hpp>
#include <chrono>
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;
using namespace std::chrono;

cv::CascadeClassifier* cascadeFrontalFace;
cv::Mat image;

std::vector<cv::Rect> detectFace(){
    std::vector<cv::Rect> dets;
    cascadeFrontalFace->detectMultiScale(image,dets, 1.2, 6,0,cv::Size(20,20));
    return dets;

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    std::cout<< cv::getBuildInformation()<<endl;
    image = cv::imread("/home/nick64/testgstreamer/3/video12z8.jpg", CV_LOAD_IMAGE_GRAYSCALE);
    cascadeFrontalFace=new cv::CascadeClassifier("/usr/local/share/OpenCV/haarcascades/haarcascade_frontalface_alt2.xml");
    int tcnt[]={3,0,3};
    for(int i=0; i<3; ++i){        
        milliseconds startTime = duration_cast< milliseconds >(

        for(int n=0; n<10; ++n){
            std::vector<cv::Rect> dets;
            cascadeFrontalFace->detectMultiScale(image,dets, 1.2, 6,0,cv::Size(20,20));
            std::cout << "face detected:" << dets.size()<<endl;

        milliseconds endTime = duration_cast< milliseconds >(
        std::cout<< "between time: " << (endTime-startTime).count() << "num threads: " << cv::getNumThreads() <<endl;
    delete cascadeFrontalFace;

Output for OpenCV 3.3:

Why do you post an issue ? Are you sure that detectMultiscale use thread?

I also pust bugreport now. I think all function work in one thread after this. But i test it only for CascadeClassifier::detectMultiScale
