I have a question regarding performance analysis of precompiled & optimized SPIR-V binaries using Mali Offline Compiler.
From the documentation, it seems that it should be possible to provide SPIR-V binary file format as input to malioc tool for performance analysis:
"The input file can be either:• A single ESSL source shader• A single SPIR-V binary module that has been compiled using Vulkan semantics"
I have tried the second option by using the following command line:
./malioc --spirv -y main --fragment optimized.spirv
but what happens is that glslValidator gets called by malioc, tries to compile the input as ESSL and displays the following error: "ERROR: Failed to compile ESSL to SPIR-V"
Is there a way to skip the compile step, and just do a performance analysis run on the provided SPIR-V file?
