Choosing Debuggers

When you run an analysis configured for interactive debugging, the
Intel Inspector
halts application execution and, depending on how the analysis was started, launches a debugging session immediately or when a problem is detected.
The interactive debugging feature supports both the Intel® Debugger (graphical and command line interface) and the GNU gdb* debugger (default). Other debuggers that support the gdb remote interface may also work.
If a supported debugger is not in the system search path, use the
Other supported debugger
option to specify an alternative location. You can also use this option to specify an alternative debugger.
If you choose to start a debugger and connect to the debugging session manually, the analysis pauses while waiting for the debugger connection and displays a message in the
Collection Log
window or terminal where the analysis was launched. Connect using the
target remote
command displayed in the message. You must terminate the analysis if the connection cannot be established.
To choose a debugger:
  1. Choose
    File
    Options...
    .
  2. In the
    Options
    dialog box, choose the
    Debugger
    page.
  3. Select the appropriate radio button.
  4. Choose the
    OK
    button.

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 reserved 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.
