I guess. As I said, each finds/misses things the other doesn't. ASan notably doesn't find uninitialized memory reads, while valgrind can. OTOH, ASan can find invalid memory access in stack memory, while valgrind can't.
I am fully in favour of running both tools! But due to its speed, valgrind is mostly limited to once-nightly, not at every commit.
