Stack size of tasks

Using the FRDM-KLZ25 board from Freescale.

I have noticed the stack size of a task defined in cmsis_os.h DEFAULT_STACK_SIZE is about 2kbytes. For a simple task this is a bit of an overkill.

Is there a way to determine the max stack needed for a task? I have used 128 bytes with no problem.

Task was flashing and LED with delay.

Thank you.

Note that in Mbed OS 5 you can set stack sizes through the Mbed OS configuration system. See the documentation for more information.
