C Specification

The VkCheckpointDataNV structure is defined as:

// Provided by VK_NV_device_diagnostic_checkpoints
typedef struct VkCheckpointDataNV {
    VkStructureType            sType;
    void*                      pNext;
    VkPipelineStageFlagBits    stage;
    void*                      pCheckpointMarker;
} VkCheckpointDataNV;


  • sType is the type of this structure.

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

  • stage is a VkPipelineStageFlagBits value specifying which pipeline stage the checkpoint marker data refers to.

  • pCheckpointMarker contains the value of the last checkpoint marker executed in the stage that stage refers to.


The stages at which a checkpoint marker can be executed are implementation-defined and can be queried by calling vkGetPhysicalDeviceQueueFamilyProperties2.

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

  • VUID-VkCheckpointDataNV-pNext-pNext
    pNext must be NULL
