executable-of-interest

Specify which executable to analyze.

GUI Equivalent

Dialog Box Project Properties-Target Child Application field

Syntax

-executable-of-interest <executable-name>

Arguments

executable-name

Name of executable to analyze for errors.

Default

Data is collected on the specified target and all its child processes.

Actions Modified

collect

Description

Use the executable-of-interest action-option to specify an executable for the collect action. This is useful when the target, for example a script, launches additional executables and you only want to run the analysis on a particular executable (child application).

Note

Multiple processes cannot be analyzed in a single analysis run.

Example

This command runs a leak detection analysis. The target startApp is run, but data collection does not begin until startApp launches the child application myCounter. Only leaks detected in the myCounter process are saved in the analysis result.

$ inspxe-cl -collect mi1 -executable-of-interest myCounter -- startApp
