// Provided by VK_EXT_debug_utils
VK_DEFINE_NON_DISPATCHABLE_HANDLE(VkDebugUtilsMessengerEXT)

Description

The debug messenger will provide detailed feedback on the application’s use of Vulkan when events of interest occur. When an event of interest does occur, the debug messenger will submit a debug message to the debug callback that was provided during its creation. Additionally, the debug messenger is responsible with filtering out debug messages that the callback is not interested in and will only provide desired debug messages.
