Trouble with arm-eabi-none-gcc


(Alex Pabouctsidis) #1

I’m trying to setup sonarcloud for our project and build environment.

Our code runs on a STM32 microcontroller and is built using the ARM GCC toolchain (

Our project is managed by eclipse CDT with a special add-on for the ARM MCU. Eclipse CDT automatically generates the makes file, and we can build them via the cmd prompt in windows.

I followed the steps and installed the Scanner and Build wrapper for windows, and can build the project using the command:

"build-wrapper-win-x86-64.exe --out-dir bw-output make clean all’

Followed by:

“sonar-scanner.bat -Dsonar.projectKey=FFRM -Dsonar.organization=flyability -Dsonar.sources=. -Dsonar.login=xxxxxxxxxx”

The build runs properly, but the analysis comes up empty on sonarcloud.

I’m guessing that there is an issue with detecting the compiler version, etc. Any help would be much appreciated.

Here are some of the log files, as well as the eclipse generated makefile:

Could you also add the scanner logs inside the “Log Files” folder?

I cant find any generated scanner logs. Here is the console output for the scanner cmd though:

I also did another test with a MinGW project, using Eclipse CDT and have the same issue. Build runs correctly, but the analysis comes up empty.

Hopefully this extra information will help.

In the logs that you provided, I don’t see the execution of the C/C++ analyzer. Are you running the sonar-scanner command at the root of your source code?

Note: if you add -Dsonar.verbose=true, then you will see exactly which files are considered as part of the anlaysis.

(Alex Pabouctsidis) #6

Thanks, that fixed part of the issue.

Running this command from the root folder, partially works.

sonar-scanner.bat -Dsonar.projectKey=FFRM -Dsonar.organization=flyability -Dsonar.sources=.\bw-output -Dsonar.login=9eaae4694b5922871f62f16cb4443e23c0f18d77

The files found in the root folder are parsed and analyzed and shown on

The issue now is that some of the code folders are linked for elsewhere in the filesystem and not found in the root folder. Is there a way to specify these external folders.

Additionally, would it be possible to exclude certain folders, as some contain many 3rd part libraries which we don’t analyzed.

(Fabrice Bellingard) #7

Files outside of the root folder can’t be part of the analysis scope. In your case, what are those files?

For the second question, please take a look at the way to set up inclusions or exclusions on your project.

We managed to get everything set up properly. Thanks for the help.
