Intel® Inspector User Guide for Linux* OS

Intel® Inspector is a dynamic memory and threading error checking tool for users developing serial and multithreaded applications on Windows* and Linux* operating systems.


Sanitizers in Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler and Intel® Fortran Compiler help effectively pinpoint memory, address, threading, and undefined behavior related issues early in the development process. Sanitizers offer faster time to results, fewer false positives, and improved compiler integration compared to Intel Inspector. As a result, Intel Inspector will no longer be included in the Intel® HPC Toolkit. It continues to be downloadable as a standalone package and it will be discontinued in 2025 or later. Customers who have purchased Intel® Priority Support will continue to receive support. Please see Intel Inspector deprecation article for more information.
