3.4.5. Setting up the poll frequency

The Settings tab on the Run Control dialog is shown in Figure 3.18. It displays a control that allows you to change the poll frequency that Multi-ICE uses. You can do this to find a balance between the responsiveness of your host computer and the number of times Multi-ICE polls the devices to find out their status.

Setting up the poll frequency

There is a delay between a processor entering debug state and Multi-ICE noticing this and acting upon it. The settings are:

Low

Good debugger responsiveness, with minimal status polling. If the processor stops it might not be noticed quickly.

High

Fast status polling, with very poor debugger responsiveness. If the processor stops it is noticed quickly.

The default setting is midway on the scale.
