Debugging VxWorks Semaphores – give them a name!

Debugging VxWorks Semaphores – give them a name!

By Brian Kuhl Debugging semaphore interactions can be a tricky problem. When there is a deadlock or weird delay because of excessive priority inheritance, it is never just one mutex semaphore, but often the unintended interaction of several semaphores in multiple tasks. Some of the semaphores are part of the VxWorks I/O services, and some are in your application. Your…
