Does anyone have information on the use of vApplicationTickHook() to measure the execution time of a task?

Yes, vApplicationTickHook() can be used to measure execution times of task, but I would not recommend it. The hook is running from an ISR.

In a way, xTaskGetTickCount() can also be useful to measure clock ticks.

What I like to use is this:

#if ( configUSE_TRACE_FACILITY == 1 )

	UBaseType_t uxTaskGetSystemState( TaskStatus_t * const pxTaskStatusArray, const UBaseType_t uxArraySize, uint32_t * const pulTotalRunTime );


It uses some MACRO’s that must be defined by you:

#define portCONFIGURE_TIMER_FOR_RUN_TIME_STATS()	vStartRunTimeCounter()
#define portGET_RUN_TIME_COUNTER_VALUE()			ulGetRunTimeCounterValue()

Please check-out to find the details.

You can use a high-resolution TC (timer/counter) to measure the time. This allows you to get statistics in units of micro-seconds.
