Suppression Rule Examples in the GUI


  • Although you are ultimately trying to suppress problems, the Intel Inspectorvehicle for defining a suppression rule is one or more code locations.

  • Narrow rules suppress a limited number of relevant problems; wider rules suppress a greater number of relevant problems.

  • Every rule applied during analysis adds processing time.

  • The goal: Suppress the greatest number of relevant problems with the fewest number of rules.

  • To review rules to be applied during analysis, check the Suppressions tab of the Project Properties dialog box.

  • To apply rules during analysis, select the Apply Suppressions radio button on the Target tab of the Project Properties dialog box.

  • A code location may be part of multiple problems; therefore, multiple rules may suppress the same code location, or a rule created to suppress one problem may partially impact another problem.

Suppression Rule Example 1

Suppression rule Example1 suppresses any Data race problem between Read and Write code locations with the following characteristics as the last-called frame in the stack: find_and_fix_threading_errors.exe module, render_one_pixel function, and find_and_fix_threading_errors.cpp source file.

Suppression Rule Example 2

Suppression rule Example2 suppresses any problem with an Allocation site code location whose last-called frame in the stack is in the find_and_fix_memory_errors.exe module.

Suppression Rule Example 3

Suppression rule Example3 suppresses any problem where the last-called frame in the stack is in the operator() function of the find_and_fix_memory_errors.exe module and the end of the stack path is execute calling operator().
