NuttX Diagnostic Tool (Nxdiag)
The NuttX Diagnostic Tool (Nxdiag) is a command line tool that can be used to gather information about the NuttX and host systems. It also can be used to run a tests to verify that the vendor’s tools are properly installed and configured.
Its primary purpose is to gather information that can be used to debug problems and ease the process of reporting bugs for uninexperienced users.
This tool uses a Python script (
apps/tools/host_sysinfo.py) to gather information about the host system during build and a C
program to gather information about the NuttX system and display all available information. For more information about the python
script, check the command line options and code comments of
Nxdiag requires Python 3.6 or later. On Linux distributions, the
distro Python module is
recommended as it provides more accurate information about the host system.
This page shows

respective configuration options are enabled (see cmdtable).
