The PVS-Studio analyzer is intended to work on the Windows or Linux platform.
When used on Windows it integrates into Microsoft Visual Studio 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2010 development environments. System requirements for the analyzer coincide with requirements for Microsoft Visual Studio:
To work on Linux you should have the GCC or Clang compiler installed, the PVS-Studio.lic license file and the config file PVS-Studio.cfg.
PVS-Studio works on systems with main memory of 1 GB at least (the recommended size is 2 GBs or more) for each processor core; the analyzer supports multi-core operation (the more cores you have, the faster code analysis is).
