C Specification

Some applications might want measure the effect of a set of commands with a different settings. It is possible to override a particular settings using :

// Provided by VK_INTEL_performance_query
VkResult vkCmdSetPerformanceOverrideINTEL(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkPerformanceOverrideInfoINTEL*       pOverrideInfo);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer where the override takes place.

  • pOverrideInfo is a pointer to a VkPerformanceOverrideInfoINTEL structure selecting the parameter to override.


Valid Usage
  • VUID-vkCmdSetPerformanceOverrideINTEL-pOverrideInfo-02736
    pOverrideInfo must not be used with a VkPerformanceOverrideTypeINTEL that is not reported available by vkGetPerformanceParameterINTEL

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkCmdSetPerformanceOverrideINTEL-commandBuffer-parameter
    commandBuffer must be a valid VkCommandBuffer handle

  • VUID-vkCmdSetPerformanceOverrideINTEL-pOverrideInfo-parameter
    pOverrideInfo must be a valid pointer to a valid VkPerformanceOverrideInfoINTEL structure

  • VUID-vkCmdSetPerformanceOverrideINTEL-commandBuffer-recording
    commandBuffer must be in the recording state

  • VUID-vkCmdSetPerformanceOverrideINTEL-commandBuffer-cmdpool
    The VkCommandPool that commandBuffer was allocated from must support graphics, compute, or transfer 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
