Exporting results from memory-analyzing sessions

Updated: October 26, 2022

The IDE can export session data generated by a memory-analyzing tool while an application ran. This allows you to share analysis results or view them outside of the IDE.

When an IDE-launched analysis session ends (i.e., the program terminates), all of the session data have been stored in the workspace. At this point, you can export the session. The export feature is handy because it writes the analysis results in a format that can easily be imported into the IDE again; for example, into the IDE of another team member with whom you share the results.

You can view the results outside of the IDE. Memory Analysis lets you export event data as CSV files, which you can then view in Excel. The Valgrind tools generate text-based data, which you can view in any basic editor after exporting the text files.

The sections that follow explain how to export session data for each tool.
