C Specification

To help associate query results with a particular point at which an application emitted commands, markers can be set into the command buffers with the call:

// Provided by VK_INTEL_performance_query
VkResult vkCmdSetPerformanceMarkerINTEL(
    VkCommandBuffer                             commandBuffer,
    const VkPerformanceMarkerInfoINTEL*         pMarkerInfo);

Parameters

The last marker set onto a command buffer before the end of a query will be part of the query result.
