my application gets slower while using remote tools

hi all
Currently i am using the ver6.12.03 BSP for EVM_3530 board for BeagleBoard(C3). issue is when i execute an application for calculating the time taken for read/write operation to MMC card with the remote tools open the application becomes very slow. However it is fast enough without remote tools open.
i am unable to undertsand the dependency of the remote tools with the BSP. The similar behavior is also seen while running any other application also.
Please suggest me what can be the reason and solution for the same.
regards
parsh

    hi
    thanks for replying..is this behaviour there with EVM board and what is its relation with the BSP.It would be great if u provide some suggestion regarding the issue.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure which remote tools you are using. But most remote tools work over KITL and that works over the ethernet. Remote tools also have components running on the target board taking up cpu (how much depends on what remote tools you are using). So these factors can affect your real time application performance.  You may want to search under MSDN for specific information on the remote tools you are using.

    hi Jatin
    thanks a lot for replying. i am using file viewer specifically.Can there be any way of reduing this delay.

    Hi Parsh,

    Please verify in Eboot that KITL is setup to run in "interrupt" mode and not "polling" mode. Also, if your application is already in NAND flash or on the MMC, it should take less time to load than if in your Flat Release Directory (local drive on your PC).

    Best regards

    Hi David
    i am working with interrupt mode KITL. My application is not in flatrelease directory, however i try to download from my local drive to the target using file viewer and execute it. i have also tried to make appliation a part of the nk.bin and execute while remote tools (file viewer) open, still the behaviour is same. i was just wondering if it has got something to do with any BSP component beacuse same application is pretty much faster with other board on different BSP.regards Parsh

    Hi Parsh,

    Can I know what version of the BSP you use and what board revision too?

    Also, I assumed it was KITL over ethernet, but please confirm this is not USB?

    And can you provide a bit of information on the type of application you are running (API calls or things that can help us suggest an answer)?

    Thanks and best regards

    David.

    hi David
    i have mentioned all the details of the same in the beginning of this thread. I request u to please refer the same for details. Also i use USB RNDIS KITL since there is no ethernet on my board. regards Parsh

    In this case, your issue might be related to USB. The WinCE BSP has been validated for OMAP3 EVM hardware using Ethernet KITL. Which USB chip do you use on your board?
