I have a situation where the programme counter(PC) shows that vxworks msgQreceive function has been called by task A and Q is full, still I am not picking up the messages. There is no other task registered to receive messages from this Q. The sending task B, which is ISR in this case, is getting timedout everytime it tries posting new message in it. A's state is PEND which means I am waiting for some resource to get free but PC shows I have called vxworks msgQReceive and currently at qJobget+0x018 location. There seems to be two causes now(identified by me): either vxworks qjobget task is not able to do semTake or no messages in Q. But Q is full and semTake failure seems unlikely(though I dont have a mechanism to check so). Besides explaining root cause for above, can anyone suggest how to get my task in READY state again? I also tried flushing the Q; on doing this, more messages get posted in Q but A still doesnt pick up any :(

I have been working on one thread which manage and control a couple of circular buffers. It has api for other thread to access. As the thread grows bigger and bigger, I split it as 3 to 4 threads which need to share common buffers, and also their api could be used by other threads, (not these three threads). Inside api, I also allow other threads to access these three threads' common buffers(more than one buffer). SO I have to use mutex to avoid race condition . But I found mutex will be everwhere in all the threads when they update the common buffer. I am wondering whether I could reduce mutex usage(more mutex will hure my system performance). any ideas for how to reduce mutex usage meanwhile to avoid race condition. Thanks
