Select a real-time target to display a target probe in the Auto View. You also can right-click the target and select Probe to display the probe in a separate window. Click the CPU/Memory tab of a real-time target probe to display this view. Use this view to monitor CPU and memory usage on the target.

This view includes the following components:

  • CPU N Usage Chart (%)—Tracks utilization of CPU N over time, as a percentage of capacity.
  • Memory Usage Chart (MB)—Tracks target memory usage over time.
  • CPU N Statistics—Includes current CPU usage statistics including total CPU usage, CPU usage by priority level, and CPU usage dedicated to Timed Structures and interrupt service routines (ISRs). Each value represents a percentage of total capacity.
  • Memory Statistics—Displays current memory usage data.
    • Allocated—The amount of memory, in MB, currently allocated on the target.
    • Available—The amount of memory, in MB, currently available on the target.
    • Contiguous—The largest contiguous block of available memory on the target, in MB.
    • Total—The total amount of memory available to the operating system, in MB.
    • Usage—The percentage of total memory currently allocated on the target.
