Debugging Memory in TotalView
NOTE: TotalView has long included the memory debugging features of TotalView in its Classic UI. The new UI now supports leak detection, with additional features to be added in future releases. For the full-featured functionality of TotalView, see Debugging Memory Problems with TotalView in the Classic UI documentation in <installdir>\doc\pdf.
TotalView can display reports of your program's memory leaks, i.e., memory blocks that are allocated and are no longer referenced, in which case the program can no longer access the memory block, and that memory is unavailable for any other use.
When your program allocates a memory block, TotalView creates and records a backtrace for the block, which it displays in its leak report. This way, you'll instantly know where your program allocated the memory block. For more information, see Memory Leaks.
