C Specification

To query the current counter value of a semaphore created with a VkSemaphoreType of VK_SEMAPHORE_TYPE_TIMELINE from the host, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2
VkResult vkGetSemaphoreCounterValue(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkSemaphore                                 semaphore,
    uint64_t*                                   pValue);

or the equivalent command

// Provided by VK_KHR_timeline_semaphore
VkResult vkGetSemaphoreCounterValueKHR(
    VkDevice                                    device,
    VkSemaphore                                 semaphore,
    uint64_t*                                   pValue);

Parameters

  • device is the logical device that owns the semaphore.

  • semaphore is the handle of the semaphore to query.

  • pValue is a pointer to a 64-bit integer value in which the current counter value of the semaphore is returned.

Description

Note

If a queue submission command is pending execution, then the value returned by this command may immediately be out of date.

Valid Usage
  • semaphore must have been created with a VkSemaphoreType of VK_SEMAPHORE_TYPE_TIMELINE

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • device must be a valid VkDevice handle

  • semaphore must be a valid VkSemaphore handle

  • pValue must be a valid pointer to a uint64_t value

  • semaphore must have been created, allocated, or retrieved from device

Return Codes
On success, this command returns
  • VK_SUCCESS

On failure, this command returns
  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY

  • VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DEVICE_MEMORY

  • VK_ERROR_DEVICE_LOST
