  • SystemView system description string

    Hi,
    I am currently evaluating SystemView for FreeRTOS. Up to now I got everything up and running. By chance I noticed, that SystemView is updating system description defined in _cbSendSystemDesc(void) approximately every 5s. I am wondering if this periodic update is required?
    I checked this behavior by adding the following "debug" code to _cbSendSystemDesc(void):
    static void _cbSendSystemDesc(void) {
    GPIOB_PDOR ^= GPIO_PIN(17)

    //
    // SysView application and device description
    //
    SEGGER_SYSVIEW_SendSysDesc("N="SYSVIEW_APP_NAME"");
    SEGGER_SYSVIEW_SendSysDesc("O=FreeRTOS");
    SEGGER_SYSVIEW_SendSysDesc("D="SYSVIEW_DEVICE_NAME"");
    SEGGER_SYSVIEW_SendSysDesc("C="SYSVIEW_CORE_NAME"");
    //
    // SysView interrupt description.
    //
    SEGGER_SYSVIEW_SendSysDesc("I#15=SysTick");
    }


    Regards, Philipp
