Issue Details

I want to monitor the CPU usage of my Veristand system during runtime. How do I do this? 


If you are running on a real time target there are a couple of options that we could consider using external programs such as NI MAX or the Distributed System Manager: Monitoring CPU and Memory Usage on Real-Time Embedded Targets 

If you wanted to do this in VeriStand itself you could use this custom device but there is also an option to view this in the Console Viewer tool in the Workspace Window or the Project Explorer: Viewing the Console Output of an RT Target
