ARB_sparse_texture issue

Gday,

I'm encountering an issue with the ARB_sparse_texture extension where my application's memory usage is jumping 120mb when committing any tile from the mipmap tail.

The minimum code I've got to reproduce this is:

     GLuint page_texture;

     glGenTextures(1, &page_texture);

     glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, page_texture);

     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_SPARSE_ARB, GL_TRUE);

     glTexStorage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 15, GL_RGBA32F, 16384, 16384);

     // Commit a level 0 page.

     glTexPageCommitmentARB(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 0, 0, 0, 64, 64, 0, GL_TRUE);

     // 4kb increase here.

     // Commit level 10 (first tail level).

     glTexPageCommitmentARB(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 10, 0, 0, 0, 16, 16, 0, GL_TRUE);

     // 120mb increase here.

It may be important to note that the 120mb increase is constant across sparse texture sizes. Creating a 256x256 sparse texture and committing the first tail level still results in a 120mb memory increase. For convenience, that code is also:

     GLuint page_texture;

     glGenTextures(1, &page_texture);

     glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, page_texture);

     glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_SPARSE_ARB, GL_TRUE);

     glTexStorage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 9, GL_RGBA32F, 256, 256);

     glTexPageCommitmentARB(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 0, 0, 0, 64, 64, 0, GL_TRUE);

     glTexPageCommitmentARB(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 4, 0, 0, 0, 16, 16, 0, GL_TRUE);

     // 120mb increase here.

My system is running the 18.5.2 drivers with the RX480. Has anyone else seen this problem?

Thanks,

-Lucas

Hi Lucas,

You have been whitelisted. I'm moving this thread to here: OpenGL & Vulkan

Re: ARB_sparse_texture issue

Hello lucasz​, if you could provide the binary with the minimum code to reproduce the problem, that'll be very helpful for us to investigate this issue effectively. Thanks.

Re: ARB_sparse_texture issue

Hi Lucasz,

How did you measure memory usage?

Thanks

Re: ARB_sparse_texture issue

Lucas, the level 10 needs to be resident for this case as it goes beyond the total number of levels that may be partially resident.
