System Analyzer Tutorial 3: Real-time visibility for SysBios
System Analyzer Tutorial 3 demonstrates the steps needed to capture and graph real-time performance information from a target application that uses SYS/BIOS.
The tutorial is based on a "stairstep" example that runs continuously and periodically generates log events. Different threads (Hwi, Swi, Task) run to present a CPU load to the system.
The code for this example project ships with the UIA target content package (in the packages\ti\uia\examples\single folder). Code Composer Studio's New Project Wizard can be used to automatically create a project that includes the example project code. Details on how to build and configure the example project are provided in Tutorial 3A and 3B.
The tutorial has been split into two sections: Tutorial 3A runs on C66X, C64X or Cortex M3 simulators. Tutorial 3B demonstrates the use of Ethernet as a transport (for run-time monitoring of local or remote systems), and runs on C66x EVMs that include an Ethernet connector (the example code that is provided is based on a C6678L EVM).
- Tutorial 3A: Configuring ti.uia.sysbios.LoggingSetup, running the Stairstep program on the simulator - includes how to configure SysBios's real-time instrumentation and view events in the System Analyze Log view
- Tutorial 3B: Configuring the NDK to enable UIA to use Ethernet as a Transport
- Tutorial 3C: How to use the System Analyzer Execution Graph and Task Load Graph
