Vulkan Overview

Device and host utilization

Accurate performance metrics show how efficiently Vulkan application utilizes GPU and CPU. All views are synchronized and metrics are provided for the time interval selected on the timeline. VKtracer has minimal overhead and doesn't impact workloads.

Vulkan Render Pass

Performance metrics

Quickly find the slowest Vulkan pipelines and render passes. Understand bottlenecks and areas for optimizations. Analyze workload and throughput. Find out where an application is bound. Use one tool across all platforms and OS. No code changes needed.

Vulkan Command Buffer

Debug labels

Annotate pipeline sections by grouping commands into logical blocks to make the timeline even easier to understand. Assign names to command buffers and render passes to quickly match metrics. VKtracer supports Vulkan debug utilities out-of-the-box.
