C Specification

Memory for pipelines is reserved by the implementation at device creation time. The application specifies sizes to be reserved and a count for each size, and when a pipeline is created the application specifies which size to use.

// Provided by VKSC_VERSION_1_0
typedef struct VkPipelinePoolSize {
    VkStructureType    sType;
    const void*        pNext;
    VkDeviceSize       poolEntrySize;
    uint32_t           poolEntryCount;
} VkPipelinePoolSize;


  • sType is a VkStructureType value identifying this structure.

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

  • poolEntrySize is the size to reserve for each entry.

  • poolEntryCount is the number of entries to reserve.


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

  • VUID-VkPipelinePoolSize-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
