After performing an Intel Inspector analysis, data is collected into a result that can be viewed in the GUI or used to generate a report from the command line. By default, a report is written to
stdout in text format, but the inspxe-cl command provides a number of options you can use when generating a report.
Result data is easiest to interpret when viewed in the Intel Inspector GUI, which provides multiple views of the result and easy access to tools that you can use to manage and resolve detected problems. However, you can use the inspxe-cl command to generate reports that can be viewed outside the GUI and saved for future reference.
Suppression files - files containing suppression rules - can be created and applied using the Intel Inspector inspxe-cl command tool, or using Intel Inspector GUI tools. When analysis is performed on the command line, the ability to apply suppressions is automatically enabled regardless of project or result settings.
When you want to suppress all problems remaining in an application, you can use the Intel Inspector inspxe-cl command to create a suppress-all file. Suppress-all files are expensive to produce and to apply, so be sure to consider other alternatives, such as problem states or manually assigning suppression rules, before using this method to filter problems.
Convert suppression files from IBM Rational* PurifyPlus*, Valgrind* or older versions of Intel® Inspector to a format compatible with Intel Inspector SP1 and above.
After creating or converting suppression files, you can apply suppression files during analysis, finalization (symbol re-resolution) or when generating a report. There are several ways to pass suppression files to the Intel Inspector inspxe-cl command tool, including passing them in through an option file, which can be useful when you have many suppression files.
