The name of the
Intel Inspector
command line tool.
The action to perform, such as
. There must be only one action per command. So you cannot, for example, collect data and generate a report with the same command.
Action-options modify behavior specific to the action. You can have multiple action-options per action. Using an action-option that does not apply to the action results in a usage error.
Global-options modify behavior in the same manner for all actions. You can have multiple global-options per action.
[-- application]
The target application to analyze.
Options for the application.
  • To access the most current command line documentation: Enter
  • To duplicate an analysis performed in the
    Intel Inspector
    GUI: Use the
    Command Line
    button on the
    Analysis Type
    window panes to copy the exact command to the clipboard.

Example #1

Example #2

This example:
  • Runs a
    Detect Deadlocks and Data Races (ti2)
    analysis on the application
  • Stores the collected data in a result in the specified

$ inspxe-cl -collect ti2 -result-dir
myResult -- myApp
  • -collect
    = action
  • ti2
    = argument of action
  • -result-dir
    = action-option
