4.9.1. Introduction

Connext Micro is designed for use in real-time systems and uses a predictable and deterministic memory manager to ensure that memory growth is not unbounded, OS memory fragmentation is eliminated and memory usage can be determined a-priori. The advantage with this design is that proper operation is ensured as soon as steady state has been reached. However, it also places an additional burden on the system designer to properly configure each resource limit. The purpose of this document is to describe all resource limits in Connext Micro, what the behavioral impact is, and what the impact on memory usage is.
