inspxe-cl Actions, Options and Arguments

This reference provides details on all options supported by the
Intel Inspector
command tool.
Command options are categorized as follows:
  • action:
    The action that the command performs, such as collect data or generate a report. You must specify exactly one action per command.
  • action-option:
    Defines a behavior applicable to the specified action. Only use action-options that are supported by the action, or a usage error will result. You may have one or more supported action-options per command.
  • global-option:
    Defines a behavior applicable to all actions. You may have one or more global-options per command.
Action-Option Usage Rules:
  • If opposing action-options are used on the same command line, the last specified action-option applies.
  • An action-option that is redundant or has no meaning in the context of the specified action is ignored.
  • Attempted use of an inappropriate action-option which would lead to unexpected behavior returns a usage error.
