"Out of memory in pool" with CoOS+lwIP on STM32F4

Question asked by jespersen.thomas.001 on Dec 8, 2012

 Hi all.

I have never really been the RTOS guy but I have decided to give it a try now, especially because of the need of a proper IP stack with Socket integration.
So I decided to try and implement the lwIP stack with the CoOS system on my STM32-E407 from Olimex, that contains an STM32F407ZGT6.

As CoOS has not been ported to the STM32F4 devices yet I used the project found in this post as the ground structure: http://www.coocox.org/forum/topic.php?id=1549
I then added the lwIP v.1.3.1 stack found in the CoOS+lwIP example for the LPC1766 processor.
I then finally added the required HAL drivers (ethernetif.c etc.) found in the original FreeRTOS+lwIP by ST, and then changed to match the board.

Then when I try to run the project I can sucessfully start the lwIP stack and do its' ARP requests and receipts.
But when I first connect to the board and it is about to make a response all the "pbuf's" is filled up and I get these errors:
pbuf_alloc(length=60)
pbuf_alloc: allocated pbuf f_free: deallocating KT
pbuf_alloc(length=60) == f f_free: deallocating KT
memp_malloc: out of memory in pool TCPIP_MSG_INPKT
pbuf_free( TCPIP_MSG_INPKT
pbuf_free: deallocating KT

The complete debugging output can be found in this text file: lwip-debugging-output.txt

The CoIDE project for the board can be downloaded here: STM32F4_Discovery_CoOS.zip
Hopefully you will then be able to get a better idea of the problem and maybe bring me some suggestions on how to solve it.
