Profiling headless applications

Is it possible somehow to profile a headless app, like this one https://github.com/SaschaWillems/Vulkan/blob/master/examples/renderheadless/renderheadless.cpp ? I was able to get some insights using RenderDoc + Radeon graphics profiler, but can’t figure out a way to profile for Nvidia devices as well.

Hi Vladimir,

Currently, we don’t have a way to profile headless Vulkan applications since we need a frame delimiter to do our captures.

This has been a common request and it’s in our backlog to support. We are hoping to meet this ask with a capture API at first, but in the future support specifying some “frame” delimiter.

Hope this helps! And sorry we don’t have an immediate solution for you. :(

Thanks,
Seth

Seth,

thank you for your prompt reply! Glad to hear, that you have it in your backlog!
