Workflows-Quick Paths to Maximizing Productivity

There are many ways to take advantage of the power and flexibility of the Intel® Inspector.

Use the following workflows to help you maximize your productivity as quickly as possible. See links below for more details on each workflow.

Typical Workflows

Usage

Analysis

Use the graphical user interface (GUI) to:

  1. Inspect a running application for issues and collect a result.

  2. Investigate the result.

  3. Fix issues that should not remain in source code.

Reporting

Use the command line interface (CLI) to:

  1. Inspect a running application for issues and collect a result.

  2. Investigate the result.

Regression Testing

  1. Create a gold standard:

    • Use the GUI (or CLI) to create a result from which you have successfully eliminated all real problems.

    • Use the CLI to create a suppression file to match any remaining problems you have determined you can ignore.

  2. Change your source code.

  3. Use the CLI (or GUI) to check for new problems:

    • Apply the suppression file when you run a new analysis.

    • Determine if the changed source code introduced new problems that do not match those in the suppression file.
