CODECOMPOSER: Stack Usage View: Call graph (-cg) is not supported in OFD ultility!

Part Number: CODECOMPOSER
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: MSP430FR5969

Hi everyone, 

I have a project I'm trying to debug some strange behaviour on a project and I cannot view the Stack Usage for some reason. In the Stack Usage View I get "Call graph (-cg) is not supported in OFD utility!" instead of the usual graphs. 

Originally I was using CCS 7.3 but have since tried it on CCS 10.3 with exactly the same results. 

This is on one particular MSP430FR5969 project. On another, it works fine. 

Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong with this project? 

Thanks in advance,

Terry

  • Hello,

    Originally I was using CCS 7.3 but have since tried it on CCS 10.3 with exactly the same results. 

    In both CCS versions, what version of the compiler is being used build the project?

    Thanks

  • Hi Ki, apologies for the slow reply!

    In 7.3 I was using 4.4.5 , but I couldn't find it to install it in 10.3, so I went with 4.4.8. This was done to have minimal hassles reusing an old project.

    EDIT: Recompiling in 7.3 with 4.4.8 doesn't work either.

    EDIT 2: In 7.3, if I change to a newer compiler version, it (the Stack Usage View) works (16.9.4.LTS), but it causes all sorts of compile errors which look like a nightmare to sort out.

    Thanks, 

    Terry

  • Hi Terry,

    4.4.x is an old version of the compiler and does not support the Stack Usage View. You will need to need to use at least 15.x of the compiler.

    Thanks

  • I see, thanks for clarifying Ki. I worked around the issue by using the ROV Classic to view stack usage.

  • Ah yes, If you are using TI-RTOS, then ROV can give you the stack usage during run-time. Likely more valuable I assume.
