|Description:||Debugging and profiling tool (1:3.7.0-2)|
Valgrind is an award-winning 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 tools. 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 profiler, and a heap profiler. It also includes one experimental tool, which detects out of bounds reads and writes of stack, global and heap arrays.
For Architecture i386, valgrind is 32-bit only, and valgrind-64bit is both 32 and 64-bit. On Architecture x86_64, valgrind is always both 32 and 64.
