How to Display task usage?


I have an equipment that integrate FreeRTOS+Web Server.
I would like a web interface that displays CPU/RAM usage for each task.
For CPU usage, I saw FreeRTOS integrate vTaskGetInfo() function but it is for debugging only (
=> How can I do ?

It is listed as debugging only because it has a somewhat sizable period when it needs to block the scheduler, but if you application can tolerate that, it is still usable. I just wouldn’t call it regularly at a fast interval.

I thank you, it operates… but CPU usage for interruptions isn’t counted, ins’t it ?.. because I’m surprised that my iddle task is always superior at 85%.
… is it possible to integrate interruptions ?

How easy that would be depends on the chip you are using. If you are using something with a single interrupt entry point then it would be moderately simple, if you are using something that autovectors to lots of different interrupt service routines then it would be harder.

FreeRTOS doesn’t provide hooks to measure the time in interrupts. For most systems, that should be pretty short.

It is possible to by using the freertos_tasks_c_additions.h file to implement yourself a tracking of ISR usage (and make ISR time not count to the interrupted task). I have done it, but it isn’t code that I can share as it was done on company time so they maintain proprietary rights. It does require that YOU add code to every ISR to call a function at the start and end of the ISR to do the tracking.
