My multiple BLE client connection example rarely succeeds

I'm trying to connect my ESP32 WROOM to two BLE devices, an HM10 and HM18. Occasionally it works, but most of the time it fails in one of two ways. 1. It gets a disconnect event "gattClientEventHandler: disconnect event, reason: 62, connId: 0, my connId: 255, my IF: 4, gattc_if: 4". Or 2. it gets a "Guru Meditation Error: Core 0 panic'ed (Interrupt wdt timeout on CPU0)".

I have tried to enabled logging, taken Bluetooth sniffer traces, and and tried different variations of the code which sometimes changes which result I see more, but in all cases I would estimate it works 25% of the time. Once it's connected, it seem to stay connected, and once instance I let it stay connected all night.

I can supply code, debug traces, and sniff traces. Could somebody help me troubleshoot this behavior?

Thanks, Paul

You appear to be using Neil Kolban's ESP32-snippets (you should at least mention this - it's NOT plain esp-idf code).

There is a BLE multi-connect example that might help give you some ideas: look in './esp-idf/examples/bluetooth/bluedroid/ble/gattc_multi_connect/main/gattc_multi_connect.c', and look specifically for ESP_GATTC_DISCONNECT_EVT

I'd be particularly suspicious of 'disconnect events' being properly associated with the correct device instantiation in the esp32-snippet code. I've not done multi-device connections myself, but I have some familiarity with the BLE code in question.

I posted the code, but for some reason it didn't show up on the forum. I've now changed to use the gattc_multi_connect and modified it for two devices. I changed this line "if (conn_device_a && conn_device_b /*&& conn_device_c*/ && !stop_scan_done){" While it works more consistently, I still crashes with the same stack, which I've now included below. What could be the problem?

Since the problem above doesn't necessarily block me I'm moving on. I would like to understand if this is a bug in the example somewhere else, but from a prototype point of view, I can continue with my testing. But now I have new problem with the multi-connect example. I see that garbage is printed out for each connection. I think it must be related to the code in ESP_GATT_C_WRITE_DESCR_EVT. When I read the tutorial, there seems to be an inconsistency.

In the tutorial, it shows the ESP_GATTC_NOTIFY_EVT which some code to esp_bel_gattc_write_char, but that's not what the real code shows. Further more and possibly related, I don't see an explanation for the esp_ble_gattc_write_char in the ESP_GATTC_WRITE_DESC_EVET, which I think is producing the garbage.

What I found out is that if I remove the code that produces the garbage printout, then intermittently one of the two clients can't send notifications, which means I type in the serial program and the ESP_GATTC_NOTIFY_EVT isn't called.

Can somebody tell me if the tutorial is wrong and provide details as to why the write_char call might be required?

Thanks -Paul

i see here few potential problems. Here for example you are assuming that client is connected, but in real you just find device with this name and create instance of this class client:

Code: Select all

            if(devName == CTL_NAME || devName == HARM_NAME)
                printf("Found %s!  address: %s\n", devName.c_str(), advertisedDevice.getAddress().toString().c_str());
                if(devName == CTL_NAME)
                    pCtlClient = new MyClient(devName, new BLEAddress(*advertisedDevice.getAddress().getNative()));
                    pHarmClient = new MyClient(devName, new BLEAddress(*advertisedDevice.getAddress().getNative()));
                    finishedScanning = true;
                foundBoth = true;
Remember that device can be disconnected in any time, right after connection is open but before connection is settled.

Also backtrace you posted is well known issue with bluetooth on esp32, many times reported on github even if some may say its fixed in esp-idf master. Still its not patched in arduino.

I've switched to using the gattc_multi_connect.c example per @genedyne's advice. And that example is where the exception occurs. Glad to hear that it's been addressed. If you know of a specific patch, I would appreciate it, but I can also look and try to figure it out.

But I also run into my originally stated disconnect problem with that provided example. So I think there is still bug or missing error state handling lurking in the example provided with esp-idf.

What makes it more frustrating though, is the example doesn't match the tutorial explanation. Besides the problem I mention above, the flow chart at the top indicates that it scans for all devices first, and then connects to each, one at a time. But the example instead starts a connection when the first scan result is found. In ESP_GAP_SEARCH_INQ_RES_EVT, when a result is found it stops scanning, and calls esp_ble_gattc_open. To restart the scan, it uses the ESP_GATTC_WRITE_CHAR_EVT event, which maybe answers my questions above as to why it writes some data. But this seems a very strange way to trigger the next scan. Besides sending unwanted characters, it means trying you have to add some code to determine whether to do another start scan when you send data.

The good news is that the provided example works %90 of the time. I do see the exception and the disconnect, but it's more rare. The exception is easy to work with because it reboots and tries again. The disconnect stops the process completely, so I'm guessing I'll have to dive further into that problem at some point.

My next step is to rewrite the example so that it scans all devices first, like the flow chart, and then make the client connect a class, so I can share the event code rather than having 3 static profile event handlers. I'm close to that goal and I can use the current gattc_multi_connect.c example as a guide.

So my current open issues are:
1. Why is the example inconsistent? What is the best way to get these addressed? Should I follow up on github and report a problem there?
2. Why do the disconnects occur in the provided example? Perhaps, like you say disconnects can happen at any time. So perhaps I just need to handle the disconnect and try to reconnect. But given this is a normal use case, perhaps the example could also be reworked to handle these connects and deal with the gracefully?

More info about #2, the messages I see with gattc_multi example are as follows.

W (8331) BT_APPL: bta_gattc_conn_cback() - cif=3 connected=0 conn_id=3 reason=0x0008
W (8331) BT_APPL: bta_gattc_conn_cback() - cif=4 connected=0 conn_id=4 reason=0x0008
W (8341) BT_APPL: bta_gattc_conn_cback() - cif=5 connected=0 conn_id=5 reason=0x0008
W (8351) BT_APPL: bta_gattc_conn_cback() - cif=6 connected=0 conn_id=6 reason=0x0008

Maybe this normal activity, but the first thing I don't understand is what are if=3 and cif=6? The other two I can attribute to my registered calls as I print them out when I enter esp_gattc_cb. Where do the other's come from?

I still have problems. I can make the gattc_multi_connect.c reproduce my problems more frequently if I comment out the following lines:

Code: Select all

            //esp_log_buffer_hex(GATTC_TAG, scan_result->scan_rst.bda, 6);
            //ESP_LOGI(GATTC_TAG, "Searched Adv Data Len %d, Scan Response Len %d", scan_result->scan_rst.adv_data_len, scan_result->scan_rst.scan_rsp_len);
            adv_name = esp_ble_resolve_adv_data(scan_result->scan_rst.ble_adv,
                                                ESP_BLE_AD_TYPE_NAME_CMPL, &adv_name_len);
            //ESP_LOGI(GATTC_TAG, "Searched Device Name Len %d", adv_name_len);
            //esp_log_buffer_char(GATTC_TAG, adv_name, adv_name_len);
            //ESP_LOGI(GATTC_TAG, "\n");
This version fails more often than not. Since the statements I commented are just printing, I feel that means it's a threading issue. The failures are the same as above. Either it reboots with the exception above, or it gets a disconnect (I can't figure out where the disconnect comes from), then tries again until it fails completely leaving one of the two devices disconnected, or it does occasionally work and connects to both devices.

Concerning the stack trace when it resets, I looked on the github site and and found the issues you mention, but I don't see a resolution. I have updated my esp-idf branch to the latest, I'm not using arduino.

Is there anybody who can help me track down the issue with the example?

Thanks -Paul

I'll continue to post progress of my research in case it reveals a clue or helps somebody in the future.

I've tracked the disconnect logging back to this stack trace. This is processing a queue, which I think is created for each connection. There is an Event = 5 which is disconnect,

So now I traced the back to who entered that into the queue and added another assert in the code for when it matched the 6 long data of 4 5 4 0 0 0. This gives me this stack:

And again we taking things out of a queue. It process the queue and calls hci_hal_h4_rx_handler. So now again I track back who put this packet in the queue and now I'm add this stack trace. This one is a little wierd because it contains vhci_send at ??:? and r_eif_send at ??:?, rather than pointers to the esp-idf/components.
