Intel® Inspector is a dynamic memory and threading error checking tool for users developing serial and multithreaded applications on Windows* and Linux* operating systems. This topic is part of a tutorial that shows how to find and fix threading errors using the Intel Inspector and a Fortran sample application.

Set up the Intel Inspector Environment

Do one of the following to set up the Intel Inspector environment:

  • Run one of the following source commands:

    • For csh/tcsh users: source <inspector-install-dir>/inspxe-vars.csh

    • For bash users: source <inspector-install-dir>/inspxe-vars.sh

    The default installation path, <inspector-install-dir>, is below:

    • /opt/intel/ for root users

    • $HOME/intel/ for non-root users

  • Add <inspector-install-dir>/bin32 or <inspector-install-dir>/bin64 to your path.

In some cases, you can also run the <studio-install-dir>/psxevars.csh or <studio-install-dir>/psxevars.sh command. The default installation path, <studio-install-dir>, is below:

  • /opt/intel/ for root users

  • $HOME/intel/ for non-root users
