  • Sysview log does not start if chip in low power state

    I'm using Sysview with FreeRTOS, all is fine but I have to disable low power mode (ie remove WFI calls ), otherwise Sysview does not log anything. Is it the expected behaviour?
    Note I did the test using configUSE_IDLE_HOOK or configUSE_TICKLESS_IDLE but same result, the only workaround I found is to disable these 2 defines when using SysView
  • Hi,

    I don't know which device you are using, but in most cases, when a device is in low power mode some peripherals are disabled.
    When the debug unit is disabled or the RAM cannot be read in low power mode, debugging (and recording with SystemViewer) is not possible.

    In general it is recommended not to use low power modes for debugging.

    Best regards
  • It's a chip based on CortexM3.
    For information I'm able to use the Jlink (eg I use live watches which works fine), but when trying to connect via segger it's rejected.
    Below a log for your convenience. The first part (T3C7C) is linked with my live watches (you will recognize the RTT block header), the second part (T35FC) is linked with Sysview.
    Note that while doing further tests I succeeded once to get sysview running (probably the request was sent while my chip was not in sleep mode). As the live watches are working fine I guess Sysview could do the same (may be managing a time out?)
