AIP Core provides a number of Technical Size metrics which are designed to measure the size of specific items such as code lines, comment lines or specific artifact types. These metrics are also used by other structural rules provided by CAST. Some Technical Size result data is provided in the Health Dashboard:
A list of available Technical Size metrics is shown below - where no information is provided in the Comment column this is simply because the metric is self-explanatory.

|10151||Number of Code Lines|
Number of Code Lines (LOC) is measured as the number of source code lines excluding comments and blank/empty lines. The algorithm used by CAST is as follows for all object types (For container type objects, the algorithm includes lines of code of children objects) identified by CAST:
More generally, there are two contexts for LOC measurement.
It is used as a basis for several major features:
See also Core Metrics which is an extension that provides an alternative Code Lines counting mechanism.
|10107||Number of Comment Lines|
Number of Comment Lines is measured as the number of all comment lines including mono-line and multi-line comments.
|10109||Number of Commented-out Code Lines|
Number of Commented-out Code Lines is measured as the number of all comment lines that contain source code only.
Please note that unless the following criteria are met by the source code, then the metric will be disabled:
What is a "clean" comment?
What is an "OOV"?
An "OOV" is an "Out of Vocabulary Word". With regard to CAST, an OOV is a word that has never appeared in the code.
