Step 8: Verify the Target System Setup
Why Use the Real-Time Readiness Checker?
- Verifies whether the system has a supported processor, BIOS, and OS
- Checks for features that may affect real-time performance, such as Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology, and processor power-saving states
- Reports CPU and GPU frequencies
- Operates at the UEFI BIOS or OS level
Running the Real-Time Readiness Checker
- From your development host system, reconnect to the target via SSH:ssh root@<target>
- If possible, maximize the terminal window to full size. The real-time readiness checker displays tables of settings that are best viewed in a wide window, though text will wrap and the screen will scroll accordingly.
- In the SSH session, run the real-time readiness checker:tcc_rt_checker | more
- In the output, check the Result column for each checker:
- IfRT_READYappears for all checkers, the target system is properly configured.
- IfNOT_RT_READYappears for any checkers, use the commandtcc_rt_checker -lfor details.
