C Specification

The VkPhysicalDevicePerformanceQueryFeaturesKHR structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_KHR_performance_query
typedef struct VkPhysicalDevicePerformanceQueryFeaturesKHR {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    void*              pNext;
    VkBool32           performanceCounterQueryPools;
    VkBool32           performanceCounterMultipleQueryPools;
} VkPhysicalDevicePerformanceQueryFeaturesKHR;


This structure describes the following features:


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

  • pNext is NULL or a pointer to a structure extending this structure.

  • performanceCounterQueryPools indicates whether the implementation supports performance counter query pools.

  • performanceCounterMultipleQueryPools indicates whether the implementation supports using multiple performance query pools in a primary command buffer and secondary command buffers executed within it.

If the VkPhysicalDevicePerformanceQueryFeaturesKHR structure is included in the pNext chain of the VkPhysicalDeviceFeatures2 structure passed to vkGetPhysicalDeviceFeatures2, it is filled in to indicate whether each corresponding feature is supported. VkPhysicalDevicePerformanceQueryFeaturesKHR can also be used in the pNext chain of VkDeviceCreateInfo to selectively enable these features.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-VkPhysicalDevicePerformanceQueryFeaturesKHR-sType-sType
