API calls to create tasks, queues or semaphores cause memory to be allocated. If there is no memory available then the API call returns an error code.

Ok, but my problem is to undetstand if the size of heap memory is, for example, too large.
Thanks for answers.

I use heap_1. Then the following should be good:
Use a debugger. Let the system start up. Then check the value of "xNextFreeByte". That is an exact measure of how much heap is allocated at the moment.
