Suppressions

You (and your development team) will always know more about your code than the Intel Inspector can ever know. For example:

  • Your team lead may know of error-prone third-party code.

  • Your team architect may know specific code passages are correct as coded.

  • You may know you are currently fixing a specific bug.

Suppressing known issues based on rules you define can improve your productivity by helping you focus on only those issues that currently require your attention.

Intel® Inspector offers a variety of ways to take advantage of the power of suppression rules:
