Function Documentation

◆ gos_register_system_monitor()

gos_result_t gos_register_system_monitor ( gos_system_monitor_t system_monitor,
uint32_t  permitted_delay_ms,
gos_handler_noarg_t  callback 
)

Registers a system monitor with the system monitor thread

A system monitor ensures the app thread or other construct is not locked up. This is done by periodically updating the monitor before a timeout. If the timeout expires a watchdog is triggered which performs a software reset.

A system monitor works as follows:

  1. Register a system monitor by calling: gos_register_system_monitor()
  2. Once the monitor is registered, gos_update_system_monitor() MUST be called before permitted_delay milliseconds expires otherwise a watchdog fault will occur.
  3. Use gos_unregister_system_monitor() to unregister the monitor.
Note
ALL system monitors must be unregistered before the app exits, i.e. during gos_deinit()
Parameters
[out]system_monitor: A pointer to a system monitor object that will be watched
[in]permitted_delay_ms: The maximum time in milliseconds allowed between monitor updates
[in]callback: Optional callback to be invoked when gos_update_system_monitor() is called for the monitor. Leave NULL if unused.
Returns
gos_result_t

◆ gos_unregister_system_monitor()

gos_result_t gos_unregister_system_monitor ( gos_system_monitor_t system_monitor)

Unregister system monitor

This removes a system monitor.

Parameters
system_monitorSystem monitor object to unregister
Returns
gos_result_t

◆ gos_update_system_monitor()

gos_result_t gos_update_system_monitor ( gos_system_monitor_t system_monitor,
uint32_t  permitted_delay_ms 
)

Updates a system monitor and resets the last update time

After a system monitor is registered, this must be called before permitted_delay milliseconds expires otherwise a watchdog will be triggered.

Parameters
[out]system_monitor: A pointer to a system monitor object to be updated
[in]permitted_delay_ms: The maximum time in milliseconds allowed between monitor updates
Returns
gos_result_t
