The Instrumentation tab allows you to choose how Memory Validator monitors memory.
The picture below shows the default settings:
There are four options to choose from. Each option is slower than the previous option.
•Normal Memory allocations and handle allocations are monitored. No other checks are performed.
•Detect uninitialised data in C++ objects When objects are created they are checked to ensure all data members are initialised. Debug mode applications only.
•Detect "deleted" this objects When methods are called the "this" pointer is checked to ensure it is valid.
•Detect memory corruption The CRT heap is scanned every N function/method calls to check it's integrity.
