WiFi cannot allocate memory in SPIRAM when ISRAM is full

Postby philippe_44 » Fri May 24, 2019 7:04 am

I have an application that allocates lots of mid that were below SPIRAM threshold SPIRAM_MALLOC_ALWAYSINTERNAL. The Wifi driver was failing regularly its memory alloc (and then disconnecting) and I realized that it was happening once the internal memory was consumed by my other applications. Moving SPIRAM_MALLOC_ALWAYSINTERNAL to 2048, which is way below most of my application blocks, the problem went away.
1/ reading the the doc, the WiFi alloc shall not fail, but shall try SPIRAM then
2/ I've set the NEW option to allocate WiFI to SPIRAM first and then fallback to internal and it does not seem to work
I Have the 64MBits SPIRAM, with 1.7MB available

I have the same issue. As soon as I enable the option for Wifi and LWIP stack to allocate from PSRAM, weird things such as WiFi not connecting starts happening. Were you ever able to figure this out?
