Run Analysis

To find memory errors that may need fixing, run a memory error analysis.

Run a Memory Error Analysis

Click the Start button on the Analysis Type window and the Intel Inspector:

  • Executes the find_and_fix_memory_errors.exe application.

  • Identifies memory errors that may need handling.

  • Collects the result in a directory in the:

    • tachyon_insp_xe\vc9\My Inspector XE Results - find_and_fix_memory_errors\ directory (Visual Studio* IDE)

    • Inspector\Projects\memory\ directory (Standalone Intel Inspector GUI)

  • Finalizes the result.

During analysis, the Intel Inspector displays a Collection Log window similar to the following:

Collection Log window


The result name appears in the tab. Here, the name of the result is r000mi2, where

  • r = constant

  • 000 = next available number

  • mi = memory error analysis type

  • 2 = preset analysis type of medium scope


Intel Inspector also offers a pointer to the result in the Solution Explorer (Visual Studio* IDE) and Project Navigator (standalone GUI).


The Collection Log pane shows analysis progress and milestones.

Notice you can start to manage results before analysis (collection and finalization) is complete by clicking the Summary button; however, this tutorial does not cover handling issues before analysis is complete.


This tutorial explains how to run an analysis from the Intel Inspector GUI. You can also use the Intel Inspector command line interface (inspxe-cl command) to run an analysis.

The Summary window automatically displays after analysis completes successfully.
