When a pipeline is created, its state and shaders are compiled into zero or more device-specific executables, which are used when executing commands against that pipeline. To query the properties of these executables, call:
// Provided by VK_KHR_pipeline_executable_properties VkResult vkGetPipelineExecutablePropertiesKHR( VkDevice device, const VkPipelineInfoKHR* pPipelineInfo, uint32_t* pExecutableCount, VkPipelineExecutablePropertiesKHR* pProperties);
deviceis the device that created the pipeline.
pPipelineInfodescribes the pipeline being queried.
pExecutableCountis a pointer to an integer related to the number of pipeline executables available or queried, as described below.
NULLor a pointer to an array of VkPipelineExecutablePropertiesKHR structures.
NULL, then the number of executables associated
with the pipeline is returned in
pExecutableCount must point to a variable set by the user
to the number of elements in the
pProperties array, and on return the
variable is overwritten with the number of structures actually written to
pExecutableCount is less than the number of executables associated
with the pipeline, at most
pExecutableCount structures will be
VK_INCOMPLETE will be returned instead of
VK_SUCCESS, to indicate that not all the available properties were
