C Specification

To wait on the host for the completion of outstanding queue operations for all queues on a given logical device, call:

// Provided by VK_VERSION_1_0
VkResult vkDeviceWaitIdle(
    VkDevice                                    device);


  • device is the logical device to idle.


vkDeviceWaitIdle is equivalent to calling vkQueueWaitIdle for all queues owned by device.

If VkPhysicalDeviceVulkanSC10Properties::deviceNoDynamicHostAllocations is VK_TRUE, vkDeviceWaitIdle must not return VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_HOST_MEMORY.

Valid Usage (Implicit)
  • VUID-vkDeviceWaitIdle-device-parameter
    device must be a valid VkDevice handle

Host Synchronization
  • Host access to all VkQueue objects created from device must be externally synchronized

Return Codes
On success, this command returns

On failure, this command returns
