Troubleshooting Application Crashes

Symptoms

The application crashes when you run an
Intel Inspector
analysis.

Details

Both the application and the
Intel Inspector
run in the same address space. This means:
  • A bug that can cause the application to crash while running without the
    Intel Inspector
    can cause the application to crash while running with the
    Intel Inspector
    .
  • A bug that does not manifest itself and does not cause the application to crash while running without the
    Intel Inspector
    may manifest itself and cause the application to crash while running with the
    Intel Inspector
    because of parallel non-deterministic scheduling or techniques used to detect incorrect memory accesses.

Possible Correction Strategies

  • Use a conventional debugger to debug the crash.
  • Run a memory error analysis to help debug memory-related crashes before running a threading error analysis.
  • If the application crashes during analysis and the
    Intel Inspector
    reports errors before the application crashes, interpret the result data to determine if any of the reported errors caused the crash. A likely culprit should be near the bottom of the
    Collection Log
    pane.
  • Contact the Intel Customer Support team by email. Include a description of the steps leading up to the problem, the generated problem report, and the corresponding result directory.

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.
