Coverity is a professional, high quality tool that finds problems in C++ code by simply looking at that code (static analysis [wikipedia]). It is used by several projects within or connected to EP-SFT, as well as by most of the LHC experiments, to track down bugs in code before anybody ever runs it.


EP-SFT provides the infrastructure to scan a set of projects (e.g. Geant4, CASTOR, cernvmfs, ROOT, xrootd; requires registration) and serves as a knowledge base for Coverity installation and use.
