Shader Creations

The Shader Creations metric represents the number of calls per frame:

  • Microsoft DirectX* 9: The aggregated number of IDirect3DDevice9::CreateVertexShader/CreatePixelShader calls per frame.
  • Microsoft DirectX* 9Ex: The aggregated number of IDirect3DDevice9Ex::CreateVertexShader/CreatePixelShader calls per frame.
  • Microsoft DirectX* 10: The aggregated number of ID3D10Device::CreateVertexShader/CreateGeometryShader/ CreateGeometryShaderWithStreamOutput/CreatePixelShader calls per frame.
  • Microsoft DirectX* 11: The aggregated number of ID3D11Device::CreateVertexShader/CreateGeometryShader/ CreateGeometryShaderWithStreamOutput/CreatePixelShader/CreateHullShader/CreateDomainShader calls per frame.
