Typical Suppressions Usage Model Using the GUI

The following is the typical usage model for handling GUI-created suppression rules in the
Intel Inspector
:
  1. In the
    Target
    tab of the
    Project Properties
    dialog box, set
    Suppressions
    to
    Apply suppressions
    .
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Collect a new result.
    • Open an existing result (collected using the
      Intel Inspector
      GUI or command line interface).
  3. Define a suppression rule based on one or more code locations in a problem. Save the new suppression rule to the
    default.sup
    file or create a new
    .sup
    file in the default suppression directory for the project.
    Outcome: In the
    Code Locations
    and
    Problems
    panes, the
    Intel Inspector
    marks (strikes through) all result data
    potentially
    impacted by the rules in the file. (It may take some time for all marks to appear. The marks remain in the result even if you close and then reopen the result.)
  4. Review the marked data to assess the effectiveness and potential reach of the rule. If necessary, delete the rule and start over, or edit the suppression file in a text editor.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as necessary.
  6. Run a new analysis using the
    Intel Inspector
    GUI or command line interface.
    Outcome: The
    Intel Inspector
    does not collect result data impacted by the new suppression rule(s) and the rules in any other files and directories identified in the
    Suppressions
    tab of the
    Project Properties
    dialog box.
