Intel Inspector is a C++ development tool that can be used to detect memory leaks and corruption.

Using this tool and when trying to detect memory leaks in our library, which uses the Misys Sophis toolkit, a lot of memory leaks are found, due to the fact that memory cache used by Sophis or our toolkit library are not correctly released: about 4000 are displayed after analysis. Using existing filters provided by the tool is not sufficient in order to detect which are relevant or not.

The subject of this post is then to provide methods which permit to filter memory leaks which are not due to a cache or static data allocated in the loaded dll's.
