I suspect a new version of FreeRTOS is in the making and, just before it arrives as a very pleasant NY gift, I have a request.
Is there any chance to implement the task names for “IDLE” and Tmr Svc" a macro such as configTASKNAME_TIMER and configTASKNAME_IDLE (or something similar) to enable names to be specified in the FreeRTOSConfig.h file.
The reason for my request is as follows:
- We are trying to use the taskname directly as a parameter in syslog functionality as the ProcID field.
- But, with the space in “Tmr Svc” it becomes seen as 2 different fields as per the RFC5424
- The Tmr" portion becomes the ProcID and the “Svc” portion becomes the Msg ID field.
We currently change the name used in the source code but it would make life a bit more standard/simple if existence of the macros could be checked and if not there, the default is defined in FreeRTOS.h to the current names
