C Specification

A marker region can be opened by calling:

// Provided by VK_EXT_debug_marker
void vkCmdDebugMarkerBeginEXT(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkDebugMarkerMarkerInfoEXT*           pMarkerInfo);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer into which the command is recorded.

  • pMarkerInfo is a pointer to a VkDebugMarkerMarkerInfoEXT structure specifying the parameters of the marker region to open.


Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • pMarkerInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkDebugMarkerMarkerInfoEXT structure

  • commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics, or compute operations

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to commandBuffer must be externally synchronized

  • Host access to the VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must be externally synchronized
