Hello:

 

I'm using Atmel Studio with a FreeRTOS project and the FreeRTOS Viewer. I see the information only updates when system is in halt. Is there any way to update this informaiton dynamically, while running? Is there any setup needed for this?

 

I would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks

Gus

No, the plugin reads the RTOS state on halt... So unless you want to step through your tasks then it would be difficult.
.
Why would you want it to update live?

Hi:

 

For the same reason Keil tool has a live update on debug. You can see the evolution of some parameters and see where things are going wrong to decide where to break and step through.

 

Thanks for the answer.

... woulnd't a data breakpoint on the thing that goes wrong be better? 

 

We used to have a plugin that did monitor freertos live using DWT trace, but due to licensing it's no longer available.
