: One or more occurrences of a detected issue, such as an uninitialized memory access. Multiple occurrences have the same call stack but a different thread or timestamp. You can view information for a problem as well as for each occurrence.
problem breakpoint
: A breakpoint that halts execution when a memory or threading analysis detects a problem.
In a Linux* debugger, a problem breakpoint is indicated by display of source line information, a unique problem breakpoint ID, and a short problem description.
problem set
: A group of problems with a common problem type and a shared code location that might share a common solution, such as a problem set resulting from deallocating an object too early during application execution. You can view problem sets only after analysis is complete.
: A compiled application; a collection of configurable attributes, including suppression rules and search directories; and a container for analysis results.
