  1. 在C++文件中注册该运算。包含参数个数,类型,返回值类型,运算名称等。大概就是C++头文件中函数的定义吧.同时在此处也要定义shape function
  2. 用C++实现该运算,运算的实现被称之为kernel,该实现与第一步中的注册对应,相同功能的op对于不同的输入输出类型,或者是架构(GPU,CPU)可能 有不同的实现.
  3. 创建一个python包装器(**可选**),该包装器使得可以在python层面用API对该运算进行调用。在运算注册阶段会生成默认的包装器
  4. 编写计算该运算梯度 的函数**(可选)**
  5. 测试你新添加的运算。为了方便一般在python层面进行测试,不过你想在C++层面测试也没什么问题。

Define the op's interface



#include "tensorflow/core/framework/op.h"
#include "tensorflow/core/framework/shape_inference.h"

using namespace tensorflow;

    .Input("to_zero: int32")
    .Output("zeroed: int32")
    .SetShapeFn([](::tensorflow::shape_inference::InferenceContext* c) {
      c->set_output(0, c->input(0));
      return Status::OK();
// REGISTER_OP("my_op_name")
//     .Attr(":")
//     .Attr(":=")
//     .Input(":")
//     .Input(":Ref()")
//     .Output(":")
//     .Doc(R"(
// : 
// : 
// )");
// Note: .Doc() should be last.
// For details, see the OpDefBuilder class in op_def_builder.h.

  // Adds an attr to this OpDefBuilder (and returns *this). The spec has

  // of <type>.  For lists use [a, b, c] format.
  // Note that any attr specifying the length of an input or output will
  // get a default minimum of 1 unless the >= # syntax is used.
  // TODO(josh11b): Perhaps support restrictions and defaults as optional
  // extra arguments to Attr() instead of encoding them in the spec string.
  // TODO(josh11b): Would like to have better dtype handling for tensor attrs:
  // * Ability to say the type of an input/output matches the type of
  //   the tensor.
  // * Ability to restrict the type of the tensor like the existing

  // Perhaps by linking the type of the tensor to a type attr?

  // * For a sequence of tensors with different types: <type-list>
  // Where:
  //   <type> is either one of "float", "int32", "string", ...
  //                 or the name of an attr (see above) with type "type".
  //   <number> is the name of an attr with type "int".
  //   <type-list> is the name of an attr with type "list(type)".
  // TODO(josh11b): Indicate Ref() via an optional argument instead of

  //   <rest of the description>
  //   <name>: <description of name>
  //   <name>: <description of name>
  //     <if long, indent the description on subsequent lines>

Implement the kernel for the op

#include "tensorflow/core/framework/op_kernel.h"

using namespace tensorflow;

class ZeroOutOp : public OpKernel {
  explicit ZeroOutOp(OpKernelConstruction* context) : OpKernel(context) {}

  void Compute(OpKernelContext* context) override {
    // Grab the input tensor
    const Tensor& input_tensor = context->input(0);
    auto input = input_tensor.flat<int32>();

    // Create an output tensor
    Tensor* output_tensor = NULL;
    OP_REQUIRES_OK(context, context->allocate_output(0, input_tensor.shape(),
    auto output_flat = output_tensor->flat<int32>();

    // Set all but the first element of the output tensor to 0.
    const int N = input.size();
    for (int i = 1; i < N; i++) {
      output_flat(i) = 0;

    // Preserve the first input value if possible.
    if (N > 0) output_flat(0) = input(0);

需要注意的是,你定义的运算的kernel可能被并行地访问,所以要求Compute method 一定是线程安全的。


可以使用 ResourceMgr 来追踪运算的状态。

Multi-threaded CPU kernels

要实现多线程cpu版本的kernel,可以参考 work_sharder.h
