  • [SOLVED] freeRTOS plugin column naming

    I want to suggest a more clear naming of the stack info column of the freeRTOS plugin or a change of the shown data, to avoid misconception.

    Right now it shows free stack / total stack, as I found out after too long of time. I expected it to show used space / total space.

    Personally I would prefer it to show stack usage instead of free space. At least it should have a properly named title.


    On a side note, a minor bug: While creating a new CM7 project (I didn’t test, if this is processor specific), the suggestion to add the freeRTOS plugin, adds the CM4 version.

    Project.SetDevice ("STM32H743VI");



    Project.SetOSPlugin ("FreeRTOSPlugin_CM4");
  • Hi Fraengers,

    Thank you for your suggestions regarding the column naming. I will present them in our next internal meeting where we discuss future improvements. At this point in time I cannot comment on whether this will be implemented and if yes, when.

    Regarding the automatic plugin selection in your CM7 project: Could you please provide a reproducer?

    Thanks and regards

  • New Project Wizard => STM32H743VI => use attached elf file => apply suggested freertos plugin addition
    Console shows CM4 plugin was loaded.


    While you have already loaded the elf file, please observe the global variables view having a problem with structs/unions and bitfields and add it to your list, if this is not already there. (see image attached)

    PS: This board has problems too: timeouts, unknown errors with the file upload. Also I posted this answer already yesterday, but apparently it was not saved. Probably because an error message appeared on the bottom, out of screen, unnoticed, telling me that this post is too long. Which it wasn’t, but a pasted image gets counted with 1 char per pixel or something, so I hit the 10000 char limit …

  • Hi fraengers,

    thank you for providing the reproducer. I just checked and conclude that right now we are not able to fix that inconvenience. The impact is zero anyway, since the scripts for Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M7 are identical except a comment.

    Please note that having multiple cases in a single thread is likely to have the effect of a topic being dropped. The issues you face with the forum should be posted in "General", not in "Ozone related".

    Best regards
