Saving and Formatting Reports from the Command Line

By default, a report is written to
in text format, but the
Intel Inspector
command provides a number of options you can use when generating a report.

Saving a Report to a File

To save a report to a file, you must use the report-output option when generating a report, and specify a pathname for the output file. By default, most reports are saved as a text file, but you can also choose CSV or XML. Whichever file type you choose, filtering and sorting options are available for formatting your report.
Generate a status report from the most recent result and save it as
file in the current working directory.
$ inspxe-cl -report status -report-output status-report.txt

Generating a Report in CSV File Format

Use the
option with the
If you choose the CSV format and want to use a delimiter other than the default comma, you must use the csv-delimiter option to specify either a
CSV Report Example
Generate an observations report in CSV format using tab delimiters, and save it as
$ inspxe-cl -report observations -format csv -csv-delimiter tab -report-output ./out/observations.csv

Sorting Report Data

There are a pair of options that you can use to sort report data: sort-asc and
. Use the
action-option to organize a report in ascending order of the specified field(s), or use
to sort it in descending order. You can specify up to three different fields.
Data Sorting Example
Generate a problems report from the most recently collected result, and display the problems by line number in ascending order.
$ inspxe-cl -report problem -sort-asc line

Filtering Report Data

You can filter a report by specifying columns and values that should be included or excluded, and these can be used singly or in combination.
-filter | -f <column_name> = <value>
To display data that equals the specified values only, run the
command with the
action and
option as follows:
$ inspxe-cl -report
  • <column_name>
    is the column name (
    , and so on)
  • <value>
    is the value to include
Specify multiple filter items by using multiple
option attributes.
  • Multiple values for the same column are combined with 'OR'.
  • Values for different columns are combined with 'AND'.
Report Filtering Examples
Generate a Problems report that only includes problems in the source file combine.cpp that have not yet been investigated.
$ inspxe-cl -report problems -filter source=combine.cpp -filter investigated=not_investigated
Generate a Problems report, filtering it so that only critical problems are reported.
$ inspxe-cl -report problems -user-data-dir "My Inspector Results - myProjectName" -f severity=critical
