I am using VDSP 5, update 8 with a VDK project on a custom hardware using the BF537 and 16MB external SDRAM.
I want to know my heap and stack usage, so followed the guides in the documentation. This works well for the system stack and heap as you can see in the attached screenshots VDSP-LDF_Heap.PNG and VDSP-LDF_Stack.PNG. So "show stack/heap usage" is set in the global properites of the expert linker window.
However, for the user defined heap "MyHeap" the expert linker does not show any usage as heap let alone the actual water mark after some time of program run.
The memory map looks like this:
a) Why is this so?
b) Is there a possibility to have a numeric value of heap and stack usage instead of the rough estimation you get out of the visual presentation in the expert linker window?
Thanks for your assistance!
