FRAME_PORTAL_CONTENT_EVOLUTION

In addition to the Monitor - Benchmark and Indicator Monitor - Benchmark pages, the CAST Engineering Dashboard features a Version Comparison page, which provides a deeper insight into the evolution between two snapshots in a given context.

The page can be accessed from the Quick Access.

Version Comparison Summary section

This section allows you to choose the Context (i.e. Application or Module), a Snapshot Date Range and a Cost Model (see the Cost Model Administration page in Quick Access). Relevant information is then displayed below, including:

  • Functional Weight comparison
  • Technical Size comparison, including details on object-level modifications (addition, update, deletion of objects with Low, Moderate, High, and Very High complexity)
  • Effort comparison, including an estimation of evolution effort based on object-level modifications (addition, update, deletion of objects with Low, Moderate, High, and Very High complexity)
  • Cost comparison, including an estimation of evolution cost based on object-level modifications (addition, update, deletion of objects with Low, Moderate, High, and Very High complexity)
Note that the Effort and Cost data is derived from the values configured in the selected Cost Profile (the Default profile will be selected automatically) - see the section Cost Profiles Administration page in Quick Access - except where effort and cost Background Facts have been uploaded when these values will be used instead.

 

Focus section

This section provides further details on Added, Deleted and Updated artifacts, including:

  • List of objects with High and Very High complexity added between two snapshots. Display of their complexity, SQL complexity, granularity, comment situation, and coupling
  • Hyperlink to Investigation - Application Drilldown
  • Similar sub-sections for objects with High and Very High complexity updated between two snapshots
  • Similar sub-sections for objects with High and Very High complexity deleted between two snapshots
Please note that when artifacts are moved from one Module to another between two snapshots,  these artifacts will NOT be flagged as Added, Deleted or Updated and will therefore not feature in the Content Evolution statistics.
  • No labels
