      • properties & 255 = 0
  2. Select the page from the below list
  3. Check 235486096.
  4. If the Number of is observed at Module Level on dashboard then 235486096.
    1. If the Number of per module in the Knowledge Base is equal to the number shown in the CAST Engineering Dashboard then the issue occurred at least at Module level (maybe a level lower then that: Analyzer level, Metamodel Level, extension level...):
      1. If the Number of per module in the Knowledge Base is greater then the expected value then there is objects that are not supposed to be part of the module, investigate the root cause by following the page CMS Application - Modules - Incorrect module content - Number of objects higher than expected
      2. Else If the Number of per module in the Knowledge Base is lower then the expected value then there are objects that are missing from the module, investigate the root cause by following the page CMS Application - Modules - Incorrect module content - Missing objects.
    2. Else If the Number of per module in the Knowledge Base is not equal to the number shown in the CAST Engineering Dashboard, then the issue occurred at CAST Engineering Dashboard level , contact CAST Technical Support and provide the following 235486096
  5. Else If the Number of is observed at Application level on dashboard then go to section 235486096
    1. If the Number of per application in the Knowledge Base is equal to the number shown in the CAST Engineering Dashboard then the issue occurred at least at Module level (maybe a level lower then that: Analyzer level, Metamodel Level, extension level...):
      1. If the Number of per application in the Knowledge Base is greater then the expected value then there is objects that are not supposed to be part of modules, investigate the root cause by following the page CMS Application - Modules - Incorrect module content - Number of objects higher than expected
      2. Else If the Number of per application in the Knowledge Base is lower then the expected value then there is objects that are missing from the modules, investigate the root cause by following the page CMS Application - Modules - Incorrect module content - Missing objects.
    2. Else If the Number of per application in the Knowledge Base is not equal to the number shown in the CAST Engineering Dashboard, then the issue occurred at CAST Engineering Dashboard level , contact CAST Technical Support and provide the following 235486096

Relevant input

  1. Screenshot of the dashboard with URL highlighting the Number of that you are looking at.
  2. CAST Support Tool (CST) - alias Sherlock export with the following options Export Logs, Export CAST Bases with Management Base, Knowledge Base, Central base

Calculate the Number of at application/system level in the Knowledge Base

If there is only one system and one application under it which has only one module then the Number of at System level = Application level = Module Level. So directly proceed to section 235486096

Else if you are in one of the following case

  • One application with more than one module.
  • One system with more than one application.
  • One system with one application containing more than one module.

Then follow the steps given below:

  1. Identify the applications and modules belonging to the system with the help of CAST Engineering Dashboard.
  2. Go to Quick Access View.
  3. Expand the System and Application to get the list of Modules.
  4. Check the Module(s) under the application.

    Here in the above example we have application - Employee Portal, which has 5 modules - EP CICS , EP Cobol , EP DB2 , EP IMS , EP JCL
  5. Click on Monitor/Benchmark

    In the above example there are ten columns giving the number of for different modules in snapshot 1.8.3 and 1.8.4.
  6. Get the Number of for each module belonging to the system/application.
  7. Identify the module(s) generating the difference.

    Example

    In the screenshot shown in point 4, you can see that for Module EP Cobol the number of Files has decreased from 148 to 101. The difference in the number of Files at Application level is due to the change in number of Flies at Module Level.

  8. For all modules identified apply the steps given under 235486096
  9. Once you get the numbers at module level apply the below formula.
    1. The Number of at application level is the sum of Number of obtained for its modules.
    2. The Number of at system level is the sum of Number of obtained for its applications.

Calculate the Number of per module in the Knowledge Base

PLEASE NOTE:  THE QUERIES BELOW ARE ONLY VALID IN CAST AIP 8.3.36 AND BELOW.  FOR CAST AIP 8.3.37 AND ABOVE YOU MUST MODIFY THE QUERIES AS FOLLOWS:

Known cases 

PLEASE NOTE:  THE QUERIES BELOW ARE ONLY VALID IN CAST AIP 8.3.36 AND BELOW.  FOR CAST AIP 8.3.37 AND ABOVE YOU MUST MODIFY THE QUERIES AS FOLLOWS:

  • change references:
    • coa.properties  = 0
  • to
    • coa.properties & 255 = 0 


  • change references:
    • properties  = 0
  • to
    • properties & 255 = 0
  1. Number of Files
    ABAP - In CAST 7.0 the metric "Number of Files" is not counted anymore for ABAP Application. This information has no sense for ABAP Technology.
    SAP files (corresponding to ABAP code, transaction list, Web Dynpro structure, …) are created by the CAST ABAP extractor to allow the ABAP Analyzer to extract information from SAP applications. It is important to note that they are not used by developers to implement SAP applications and this is why it does not make sense to count them and to report this information in the ADG dashboard as for technologies based on source files. Moreover, the number of files generated by the ABAP extractor depends on the information that must be taken into account and how it must be analyzed.
    In versions 6 of CAST AIP, files extracted from SAP systems were counted although this information was not significant. This has been changed in version 7.0 of CAST AIP. However, as the counter is part of generic counters provided for many technologies, it is still displayed in the dashboard and it is always set to 0.

    Check the number of files between the current snapshot and the previous one, to find the number of files

  2. Number of tables
    SQL - In the dashboard, only internal objects are taken into account; however, to be able to display their names when needed, external objects are also stored in KB and CB. That’s why there is difference, so when counting objects from the database, you must take care of the object status (internal/external)

  3. Number of Copybooks
    COBOL - If copybooks are selected with programs, then they are all taken into account (because they are all analyzed). If they are selected through Working Folders, then only those that are used by programs are taken into account. Number displays copybooks that are taken into account.

  4. Number of Classes/interfaces
    When using explicit lists at module level, make sure that your modules only contain internal objects. Indeed, when a module contains an external object (class/interface), this object is marked as internal for one project of the SPA job making it taken into account in the count of number of interfaces. Generally, external objects should not be included in User Defined Modules (even through explicit list) as this could generate incoherence on the dashboard between results in the number of (number of interfaces/classes...) and total checks returned by rules (indeed, all diags filter the scope to internal objects only). To make sure that an explicit list does not contains external objects, add the following condition in the explicit list along with your query on object_ids:

    join $CTT_OBJECT_APPLICATIONS coa
    on coa.object_id = o.object_id 
    and coa.properties = 0 --only internal objects 
    and coa.application_type not in 
    	( select tc.IdTyp from TYPCAT tc, CAT c 
    	where tc.IdCatParent = c.IdCat 
    	and c.idcat = 6600 --PROJECT_SUBSET )  

     

  5. Number of comment lines
    COBOL - A comment line is identified if it contains a star ('*') in indicator area (often in column 7). AIP considers 2 types of comment lines: 

    1. Heading comment lines: they are just before the first line of code of programs or paragraphs.
    2. Inner comment lines: they are in the body of the object.
    A comment line is taken in account whatever its content. It can contain text, "decorative" chars (ex: "===", "*****", ...) or nothing. A program or a paragraph is considered as not documented if the number of heading comment lines and the number of inner comment lines equal 0.
  6. Number of SQL artifacts
    For number of SQL artifacts refer to Number of SQL Artifacts

  7. Number of packages

    Number of packages is applicable only for Java and ABAP Packages.

    You can see that the SQL procedure used to compute the number of packages is APM_SCOPE_PACKAGES.

    Which calls the procedure APM_SCOPE_CATEGORY for objects which belong to the category ID 10064 (which is the last parameter passed to APM_SCOPE_CATEGORY )

    You can execute the below query on the Knowledge base to get the object types belonging to this category ID 10064 -

    select * from Typ where IdTyp in (select IdTyp from TypCat where IdCatParent = 10064)
    Result
    99;"JV_PACKAGE";"Java Package";"ACTIVE    "
    133039;"CAST_ABAP_Package";"ABAP Package";"ACTIVE    "

     From the above results we can see that this metric is applicable only on Java and ABAP Packages, if you have packages for any other technology this metric is always displayed as zero.
