Catches critical code defects at the source code level

What is our primary use case?

We use this for catching some of the critical defects at the source code level for C and C++ code.

Pros and Cons

  • "The tool is very good for detecting memory leaks."
  • "The scanning tool for core architecture could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

I would suggest trying out automated tools along with CodeSonar on your project, and you will find out that CodeSonar reports many more defects compared to other static analysis tools, so this is a very important tool. I would rate CodeSonar as nine out of ten.
