Testing for Regressions

The recommended approach for regression testing with the
Intel® Inspector
involves these basic steps:
  1. Create a gold standard:
    • Use the GUI (or the
      command) to create a result from which you have successfully eliminated all real problems.
    • Use the
      command to create a suppression file to match any remaining problems you have determined you can ignore.
  2. Change your source code.
  3. Use the
    command (or the 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.
Intel Inspector
also offers alternative ways to test for regressions.
