ESP-IDF FreeRTOS is based on the Xtensa port of FreeRTOS v8.2.0, however some functions of FreeRTOS v9.0.0 have been backported. See the Backported Features for more information.
Task/Thread Analysis and Visualization
OpenOCD has explicit support for the ESP-IDF FreeRTOS; FreeRTOS detection can be disabled in esp32.conf. When enabled, gdb can see FreeRTOS tasks as threads. Viewing them all can be done using the gdb
i threads command; changing to a certain task is done with
thread x, with
x being the number of the thread. All threads can be switched to except for a thread actually running on the other CPU; please see the following section ESP32 Quirks for more information
