OpenCL kernel crashes with -5 Error

I am developing OpenCL program using MultiGPU.


I have to launch very large number of threads. At a time i am launching only few threads for a kernel, based on number of resources(registers usage and local memory usage ) used to best utilize GPU resources. So i am launching my kernel total n times(n = N/M), where N is total number of threads that i have to launch, M is number of threads that i can be launched at a time and n is number of times needed to launch the kernel.


     Launching of kernel for few iterations goes successfully but it fails for more iterations. Kernel crashes with -5 Error when i am launching my kernel for more iterations.


  I am getting "CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES" Error while while calling clEnqueueReadBuffer() function. It means that i am accessing GPU memory out of limit, but the same code is working fine for few iterations.


I am using Nvidia GPU device :: GeForce GTX 295

                Platform Version    ::  OpenCL 1.1

                Operating System  ::  Ubuntu 11.04



My Questions are ::

     What could be reasons the for error messages and crashes?

     What are the causes of getting "CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES" Error?


Waiting for your quick reply.


Thanks in advance.
