Hi,

I am trying to measure the run time statistics for thread running in FreeRTOS for MiMXRT1064-EVK board. I found this information for other board and it was mentioned that calculation differs with respect to #cpuport/board.

Could you help me how to do this for my board?

Regards,

Zeke

Hi Zeke,

I see if I can come up with an example of it for you. Just give me some time.

Hi Erich,

I tried following your tutorial and found the definitions given below.

#define portCONFIGURE_TIMER_FOR_RUN_TIME_STATS()   McuRTOS_AppConfigureTimerForRuntimeStats()

#define portGET_RUN_TIME_COUNTER_VALUE()   McuRTOS_AppGetRuntimeCounterValueFromISR()

Are they the internal APIs? But the APIs and definitions being used are not available for me.

  • configGENERATE_RUN_TIME_STATS_USE_TICKS
  • McuRTOS_AppConfigureTimerForRuntimeStats()
  • McuRTOS_AppGetRuntimeCounterValueFromISR()

Could you please clarify me on the above mentioned items in terms of NXP MCUXpresso SDK?

Regards,

Zeke

They are not part of the FreeRTOS delivered with the SDK (it does not support the Systick as performance counter): you can ignore these as you can use the timer. You still need to configure the timer (of course).

Hello Zeke,

 

Same procedure should work for your board as well. If you have any further question please let me know.

 

Best regards,

Hey Felipe,

I followed the tutorial but I am unable to setup as my device does not have

the timer/driver mentioned. Could you help me how to do the same with

hardware available in my board?

Regards,

Zeke

Hello Zeke,

 

You could use a different timer such as Quad Timer (TMR) instead. There are some examples included I our SDK that could help you to understand the basic configuration.
