C Specification

Device diagnostic checkpoints are inserted into the command stream by calling vkCmdSetCheckpointNV.

// Provided by VK_NV_device_diagnostic_checkpoints
void vkCmdSetCheckpointNV(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const void*                                 pCheckpointMarker);


  • commandBuffer is the command buffer that will receive the marker

  • pCheckpointMarker is an opaque application-provided value that will be associated with the checkpoint.


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

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

  • VUID-vkCmdSetCheckpointNV-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
