Source Code Repository

If you are looking for a stable release of the source code, you should download it from the Current Releases page. The rest of this page describes how to get hold of code at the leading edge of the development effort. Such code may not work properly.

The actively developed, current (v3.13 and later) code is in a git repository at

If you are doing any development work, please do it using the code from the current repository at !

The Current (3.13 and later) Repository

If you want to browse the current repository you can use the web interface.

To clone code from the current repository (anonymous, read-only git access), do this:

git clone git://

To build the cloned code, follow the instructions in the file that the clone should give you. Alternatively, the following should work:

cd valgrind ./ ./configure --prefix=... make make install

To do the build, you'll need automake version 1.10 or later and a compatible version of autoconf (e.g. 2.68). These should come as standard on any non-ancient Linux distribution.

There is also an mirror for the repository set up at . You can use it if you are behind a firewall and cannot tunnel through with . To clone from this mirror, do this:

git clone

Valgrind: an enhanced version for pmem

Build Status

This is the top-level the enhanced version on Valgrind. This version has support for the new CLFLUSHOPT and CLWB instructions. It also introduces a new tool called pmemcheck which validates the correctness of stores made to persistent memory. Be aware that this is still a prototype tool.

Please see the file COPYING for information on the license.

The layout is identical to the original Valgrind. The new tool is available in:

  • pmemcheck -- the new persistent memory aware tool

All packages necessary to build this modified version of Valgrind are the same as for the original version.

Once the build system is setup, Valgrind is built using these command at the top level:

To build tests:

To run all regression tests:

To run pmemcheck tests only:

To install Valgrind run (possibly as root if destination permissions require that):

For more information on Valgrind please refer to the original README files and the documentation which is available at:

Where $PREFIX is the path specified with --prefix to configure.

For information on how to run the new tool refer to the appropriate part of the documentation or type:

Current release: valgrind-3.18.1


Valgrind is an instrumentation framework for building dynamic analysis tools. There are Valgrind tools that can automatically detect many memory management and threading bugs, and profile your programs in detail. You can also use Valgrind to build new tools.

The Valgrind distribution currently includes seven production-quality tools: a memory error detector, two thread error detectors, a cache and branch-prediction profiler, a call-graph generating cache and branch-prediction profiler, and two different heap profilers. It also includes an experimental SimPoint basic block vector generator. It runs on the following platforms: X86/Linux, AMD64/Linux, ARM/Linux, ARM64/Linux, PPC32/Linux, PPC64/Linux, PPC64LE/Linux, S390X/Linux, MIPS32/Linux, MIPS64/Linux, X86/Solaris, AMD64/Solaris, ARM/Android (2.3.x and later), ARM64/Android, X86/Android (4.0 and later), MIPS32/Android, X86/FreeBSD, AMD64/FreeBSD, X86/Darwin and AMD64/Darwin (Mac OS X 10.12).

Valgrind is Open Source / Free Software, and is freely available under the GNU General Public License, version 2.
