C Specification

Bits which can be set in VkDeviceQueueCreateInfo::purposes specifying the purposes of an active tool are:

// Provided by VK_EXT_tooling_info
typedef enum VkToolPurposeFlagBitsEXT {
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_VALIDATION_BIT_EXT = 0x00000001,
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_PROFILING_BIT_EXT = 0x00000002,
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_TRACING_BIT_EXT = 0x00000004,
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_ADDITIONAL_FEATURES_BIT_EXT = 0x00000008,
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_MODIFYING_FEATURES_BIT_EXT = 0x00000010,
  // Provided by VK_EXT_tooling_info with VK_EXT_debug_report, VK_EXT_tooling_info with VK_EXT_debug_utils
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_DEBUG_REPORTING_BIT_EXT = 0x00000020,
  // Provided by VK_EXT_tooling_info with VK_EXT_debug_marker, VK_EXT_tooling_info with VK_EXT_debug_utils
    VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_DEBUG_MARKERS_BIT_EXT = 0x00000040,
} VkToolPurposeFlagBitsEXT;

Description

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_VALIDATION_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool provides validation of API usage.

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_PROFILING_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool provides profiling of API usage.

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_TRACING_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool is capturing data about the application’s API usage, including anything from simple logging to capturing data for later replay.

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_ADDITIONAL_FEATURES_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool provides additional API features/extensions on top of the underlying implementation.

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_MODIFYING_FEATURES_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool modifies the API features/limits/extensions presented to the application.

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_DEBUG_REPORTING_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool reports additional information to the application via callbacks specified by vkCreateDebugReportCallbackEXT or vkCreateDebugUtilsMessengerEXT

  • VK_TOOL_PURPOSE_DEBUG_MARKERS_BIT_EXT specifies that the tool consumes debug markers or object debug annotation, queue labels, or command buffer labels
