The amount of information that MemoryScape displays when you ask for Leak Detection or Heap Status reports can be considerable. In addition, this information includes memory blocks allocated within all libraries, shared or otherwise, that your program uses. In other cases, your program may be allocating memory in many different ways and you only want to focus on a few of them.
<p>Filters let you eliminate information from reports. When filtering is enabled, MemoryScape looks at each enabled filter and applies it to the report's data. In addition, a filter can have any number of actions associated with it. Enable a filter by selecting the check box at the top of a report.
<p>For more information, see the <u>filtering task</u> in the <b>Debugging Memory Problems with MemoryScape<b> manual.
