To signal a semaphore created with a VkSemaphoreType of
VK_SEMAPHORE_TYPE_TIMELINE with a particular counter value, on the
// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_2 VkResult vkSignalSemaphore( VkDevice device, const VkSemaphoreSignalInfo* pSignalInfo);
or the equivalent command
// Provided by VK_KHR_timeline_semaphore VkResult vkSignalSemaphoreKHR( VkDevice device, const VkSemaphoreSignalInfo* pSignalInfo);
deviceis the logical device that owns the semaphore.
pSignalInfois a pointer to a VkSemaphoreSignalInfo structure containing information about the signal operation.
vkSignalSemaphore is executed on the host, it defines and
immediately executes a semaphore
signal operation which sets the timeline semaphore to the given value.
The first synchronization scope is defined by the host execution model, but
includes execution of
vkSignalSemaphore on the host and anything that
The second synchronization scope is empty.
