sanitizers

This project is the home for Sanitizers: AddressSanitizer, MemorySanitizer, ThreadSanitizer, LeakSanitizer, and more The actual code resides in the LLVM repository. Here we keep extended documentation, bugs and some helper code.

The documentation for our tools:

  • AddressSanitizer (detects addressability issues) and LeakSanitizer (detects memory leaks)
  • ThreadSanitizer (detects data races and deadlocks) for C++ and Go
  • MemorySanitizer (detects use of uninitialized memory)
  • HWASAN, or Hardware-assisted AddressSanitizer, a newer variant of AddressSanitizer that consumes much less memory
  • UBSan, or UndefinedBehaviorSanitizer

Some of the sanitizers are also available for different OS Kernels:
