Testing for Regressions
The recommended approach for regression testing with the Intel® Inspector involves these basic steps:
Create a gold standard:
Use the GUI (or the inspxe-cl command) to create a result from which you have successfully eliminated all real problems.
Use the inspxe-cl command to create a suppression file to match any remaining problems you have determined you can ignore.
Change your source code.
Use the inspxe-cl 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.
