API Support

Intel® Inspector
provides API support that allows you to:
  • Gather semantic information related to your synchronization constructs.
  • Identify the semantics of your
    -like heap management functions.
  • Specify which parts of your application should be analyzed.
Applications or modules linked to the static API library do not have a runtime dependency on a dynamic library, so they can be executed independently of
Intel Inspector
and other Intel studio tools.

Using C/C++ and Fortran APIs

The default installation path,
, is below
Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit
Intel® oneAPI IoT Toolkit
installations on Linux*, the default installation path is below
  1. Specify this file in your code:
    • For C/C++, include
    • For Fortran, use
  2. Insert

Conditional Compilation for Release Versions

For best performance in the release version of your code, use conditional compilation to turn off all annotations. To eliminate all
functions from your code during compilation of the release version, define the macro
before including
You can also define this macro to remove the static library during the linking stage.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserverd for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
