After you have instrumented your binary with Discover, you run it the same way you would ordinarily. Typically, if a particular combination of input causes your program to behave strangely, you would instrument it with Discover and run it with the same input to investigate potential memory problems. While the instrumented program is running, Discover writes information about any memory problems it finds to the specified output files in the selected formats (text, HTML, or both). For information on interpreting the reports, see Analyzing Discover Reports.
Because of the overhead of the instrumentation, your program runs significantly slower after you instrument it. Depending on the frequency of memory access, it might run as much as 50 times slower.
