vTaskSuspendAll() and vTaskEndScheduler()

Postby egoncalves » Mon Mar 30, 2020 11:08 am

Hi

I have tried to use vTaskSuspendAll() and I get this :

Would there be any explication for this behaviour, specially regarding vTaskSuspendAll() ?

Don't call blocking functions (e.g. xQueueReceive()) whilst the scheduler is suspended.

Hi

thanks for the reply.
I have tried that ( I was calling vTaskDelay() ) and it still resets... :(

Can we see your code?

vTaskDelay() is also a blocking function.

This is the code:

The Delay_ms() is just a for loop. Can ESP_LOGI be called after vTaskSuspendAll() ?

Code: Select all

void Error ( const char *file, const char *function, uint32_t line, uint32_t error_number )
{
	/* Fatal Error, so initialise the minimum, inform the user, go to sleep */

	vTaskSuspendAll();

	for ( uint32_t i=0 ; i<2*30 ; i++ )
	{
		if (i%2==0)
			ESP_LOGI ( "", "\n--------------- ERROR -----\n  version:%s\n  file:%s\n  function:%s\n  line:%d\n  error:%d\n\n",
													VERSION, file,function,line,error_number );

		ct_Tasks_UpdateLEDs ( /*power LED*/ (i%2==0) ? CT_RGB_RED : CT_RGB_OFF,
					           /*state LED*/ (i%2==0) ? CT_RGB_OFF : CT_RGB_RED );

		ctVibro_Vibrate_Start ( VIBRO_UNHAPPY );
		Delay_ms ( 250 );
		ctVibro_Vibrate_Finish ();
		Delay_ms ( 250  );
	}

	PowerOff();
}

In fact would I would like to have is a FreeRTOS function that stops all the other tasks with the exception of the task calling that function.
Can the stop scheduler do this?
Of course I can keep all the handles of the tasks that I have created and suspend one by one, by this is much more work and a problem to maintain. If somebody in the future creates another task and is not aware of this then a bug is born.

Sorry, there is no such thing. If any, you can't shut down the idle tasks, so killing all tasks except the one running is no option. Killing the scheduler would stop you from doing anything that uses blocking functions, and your Error function seems to be full of them.

In fact what I want is to suspend all the tasks with the exception of the one running (the one calling the function to suspend all the other tasks). The running task should continue to run.
I cannot find such call so I assume that I need to suspend all the tasks with the exception the one that is running... :D
