Cycletime and utilization

Cycle Time and Utilization

MOTORCORTEX Tasks show statistical information in the Parameter Tree that can indicate problems with performance:

  • absolute_cycle_max; maximum cycle time in microseconds since the last reset
  • actual_cycle_max; maximum cycle time over the last second
  • desired_cycle_time_micro_s; the target cycle time in microseconds
  • reset_absolute_cycle_max; if set to 1 the absolute_cycle_max is reset to zero
  • utilization_max; the amount of time the task takes in percentage of the desired_cycle_time_micro_s
