To copy query statuses and numerical results directly to buffer memory, call:
// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0 void vkCmdCopyQueryPoolResults( VkCommandBuffer commandBuffer, VkQueryPool queryPool, uint32_t firstQuery, uint32_t queryCount, VkBuffer dstBuffer, VkDeviceSize dstOffset, VkDeviceSize stride, VkQueryResultFlags flags);
commandBufferis the command buffer into which this command will be recorded.
queryPoolis the query pool managing the queries containing the desired results.
firstQueryis the initial query index.
queryCountis the number of queries.
queryCounttogether define a range of queries.
dstBufferis a VkBuffer object that will receive the results of the copy command.
dstOffsetis an offset into
strideis the stride in bytes between results for individual queries within
dstBuffer. The required size of the backing memory for
dstBufferis determined as described above for vkGetQueryPoolResults.
flagsis a bitmask of VkQueryResultFlagBits specifying how and when results are returned.
vkCmdCopyQueryPoolResults is guaranteed to see the effect of previous
vkCmdResetQueryPool in the same queue, without any additional
Thus, the results will always reflect the most recent use of the query.
flags has the same possible values described above for the
parameter of vkGetQueryPoolResults, but the different style of
execution causes some subtle behavioral differences.
vkCmdCopyQueryPoolResults executes in order with respect to
other query commands, there is less ambiguity about which use of a query is
Results for all requested occlusion queries, pipeline statistics queries,
transform feedback queries,
primitives generated queries,
and timestamp queries are written as 64-bit unsigned integer values if
VK_QUERY_RESULT_64_BIT is set or 32-bit unsigned integer values
Performance queries store results in a tightly packed array whose type is
determined by the
unit member of the corresponding
If neither of
VK_QUERY_RESULT_WITH_AVAILABILITY_BIT are set, results are only
written out for queries in the available state.
VK_QUERY_RESULT_WAIT_BIT is set, the implementation will wait for
each query’s status to be in the available state before retrieving the
numerical results for that query.
This is guaranteed to reflect the most recent use of the query on the same

If the query does not become available in a finite amount of time (e.g. due
to not issuing a query since the last reset), a
error may occur.

vkCmdCopyQueryPoolResults is considered to be a transfer operation,
