Valgrind is an instrumentation framework for building dynamic
analysis tools.  There are Valgrind tools that can automatically
detect many memory management and threading bugs, and profile
your programs in detail.  You can also use Valgrind to build new
The Valgrind distribution currently includes six production-quality
tools: a memory error detector, two thread error detectors, a cache
and branch-prediction profiler, a call-graph generating cache and
branch-prediction profiler, and a heap profiler.  It also includes
three experimental tools: a heap/stack/global array overrun
detector, a second heap profiler that examines how heap blocks are
used, and a SimPoint basic block vector generator.  It runs on the
following platforms: X86/Linux, AMD64/Linux, ARM/Linux, PPC32/Linux,
PPC64/Linux, X86/Darwin and AMD64/Darwin (Mac OS X 10.5 and 10.6).
Valgrind is Open Source / Free Software, and is freely available
