3.10 If You Have Problems

Contact us at http://www.valgrind.org/.

See 3.11 for the known limitations of Valgrind, and for a list of programs which are known not to work on it.

All parts of the system make heavy use of assertions and internal self-checks. They are permanently enabled, and we have no plans to disable them. If one of them breaks, please mail us!

If you get an assertion failure in ‘m_mallocfree.c’, this may have happened because your program wrote off the end of a malloc'd block, or before its beginning. Valgrind hopefully will have emitted a proper message to that effect before dying in this way. This is a known problem which we should fix.

Read the Valgrind FAQ for more advice about common problems, crashes, etc.
