    • Post-mortem for SystemView

      I've been reading the docs on SystemView.

      According to the documentation, to use SystemView in the post-mortem mode, you need to connect to the target without resetting, etc.Is this true? I was hoping that I could use SystemView for debug, then, if a unit in the field panics, save the SystemView buffer to a file, download the file later, and figure out what went wrong. It doesn't sound like this is the way the tool works, but I'd like to make sure.

      Hello David,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The default method for using the post-mortem analysis is to connect to the target without resetting or modifying the RAM.
      In case that you want to save the buffer in a file, this is also possible. Then you have to copy the SystemView buffer to the corresponding file when your system enters the fault handler.
      For more information about both methods see: segger.com/doc/UM08027_SystemView.html#Post_mortem_analysis


      Best regards,
      Tobias
