Choose Debuggers

When you run an analysis configured for interactive debugging, the
Intel Inspector
halts application execution and, depending on how the analysis was started, launches a debugging session immediately or when a problem is detected.
The interactive debugging feature supports both the Intel® Debugger (graphical and command line interface) and the GNU gdb* debugger (default). Other debuggers that support the gdb remote interface may also work.
If a supported debugger is not in the system search path, use the

target remote
command displayed in the message. You must terminate the analysis if the connection cannot be established.
