DSP usage

Hello all,

I have a scenario and need your input. Let say, the DSP of OMAP3530 is currently doing an h264 algorithm, is it possible to get the CPU usage of the DSP?



Yes it is, but there is currently no 'top' like program to display it, you have to call into dsplink to get a load estimate of the dsp. The dvsdk demos show it, maybe we can get those working on beagle as well.



If you're using Codec Engine, there is a Server_getCpuLoad() API. The
DVSDK demos use this API.


thanks Koen and Chris for the info.

What if I use JTAG and Code Composer?. Is it possible to get the CPU load?
