Measuring task execution time with vApplicationTickHook()

Posted by swammaws on July 15, 2016

Hi, I wanted to ask how can I measure the created task execution time with vApplicationTickHook(). It gets called at tick but what should I do to calculate task execution time

Regards,

swam

You may want to look at http://www.freertos.org/rtos-run-time-stats.html which talks about the build in faciltiy to measure task execution time.

Thanks for the reply.Actually the problem is like rhis there are two tasks one with higher priority and and heavy and otherwithl  low priority just printing at some regular interval and i wanted to find exection of both jobs that will occur at some intervals in milliseconds.Is it possible with to meaausre with tickhook?

It would be hard to do that with the tick hook as it is not what the hook is for, so it does not have access to the information necessary.

As Richard Damon has already highlighted, there is a run time stats facility which will give you the total amount of time each task is consuming. If you what the run time for individual executions then you could use the trace hook macros http://www.freertos.org/rtos-trace-macros.html - specifically the traceTASKSWITCHEDIN() or traceTASKSWITCHEDOUT macros - where the pxCurrentTCB variable is available to you so you know which task is being switched in or out (depending on the macro you define). A similar thread: https://sourceforge.net/p/freertos/discussion/382005/thread/d20f4bf7/

ok thnks alot. Sorry Im new to freeRtos and I have one more thing to ask. I want to change the priority of task I created in main . in some other task as in mycase priority set task and I was having problem that when I do it the following way it doest give any output Am I doing it right?

BaseTypet yReturned; TaskHandlet communication_handle = NULL; //outside main

~~~ int main { .// new code yReturned = xTaskCreate((pdTASKCODE)communication, (signed char *)"Communication", configMINIMALSTACKSIZE, NULL, 1, &communicationhandle);

zReturned = xTaskCreate((pdTASKCODE)prioritysettask, (signed char *)"Priorityset", configMINIMALSTACKSIZE, NULL, 5, &priorityset_handle); // ......... } ~~~

Now wht i m doing is using handler of communication task not inside main but Priorityset one

I am setting the priority of communication task to new value as follows

~~~ static void priorityset_task() {

while (1) {

vTaskPrioritySet(communication_handle, 2);

}

} ~~~

Is it the right way to use handler or I need to do something else?

Thanks

Looks right.
