This page provides the detailed information on all the processes and steps that take place after computing function points and loading results. It will give details about the information that is written in the logs that are generated for computation.

In this page, the different log lines corresponding to the Compute function points and load results are listed with functional and technical explanation of the logs that it generates. You can get the TCC log file at CAST Logs location or by choosing the Log option from the GUI toolbar:
Connect to the management schema
Retrieve information about the application (application name, application id)
Proceed to the compute Function Points operation on the application, and provide the application name and the application ID
About to compute Function Points of application "application_name" (#application_id)...
Connect to the Analysis service
Synchronizing local site...
Build sets susceptible to be part of the list of entry point, end point, Data Functions and excluded items, refer to the following link for more information TCC - Data functions, Transaction end points, Transaction entry point nodes, Excluded items - Right hand panel
The computation of application function point has started
The computation of Data Function and Transactions is in progress, this include the following actions:
- Manage Data Function merge for more information refer to TCC - Merge/Unsplit objects
- Define exclusions from TCC parameters for more information refer to Excluded Items
- Cleanup existing Data Functions from tables to ignore, for more information refer to OMG CISQ AFP Specifications for Data Functions
- Build list of Data Functions built and Transaction end points built from Transaction Configuration Center parameters, for more information refer to TCC - Data functions, Transaction end points, Transaction entry point nodes, Excluded items - Right hand panel
- Delete obsolete Data Functions, for example Data Function where the related table is not anymore part of the application
- Manage Data Function merge after the deletion of the obsolete Data Functions deletion
- Create Data Function objects, Identify the Data Functions
- Compute RET, DET and FP for Data Functions for more information refer to Counting Function Points
- Manage Transaction merge for more information refer toTCC - Merge/Unsplit objects
- Build list of Transaction entry points built from Transaction Configuration Center, for more information refer to TCC - Data functions, Transaction end points, Transaction entry point nodes, Excluded items - Right hand panel
- Delete obsolete Transactions, for example Transactions for which the entry point in no more configured
- Manage Transaction merge after the deletion of the obsolete Transaction TCC - Merge/Unsplit objects
Computing data functions... Aug 29, 2017 10:36:34 AM
Compute the call graphs between Transaction entry points and Data Function,
The computation is done through a command line, the command line launch the executable DssRun.exe, and specify the option CONNECT_LOCAL and LOCAL_REDUCED_GRAPH. The first option is used to connect on the Analysis service on which the application is analyzed, the second option is used to compute Transactions call graph.
Computing transactions call graph...
DssRun.exe - command line arguments: -CONNECT_LOCAL('RDBMS','//host:port/postgres','username','password,'local_schema') -LOCAL_REDUCED_GRAPH
Form the reduced Transaction call graphs that reach Data functions and end-points only. They are only used for counting AFP and EFP.
Starting transaction reduced graph computation (64-bits version)...
Load reduced Transaction call graphs
Loading reduced graph data...
Detect and correct the badly calibration that can be due to customization
Refer to the following link for more information about how to custom calibration Automation-Insert custom treatments during the computation
Badly calibrated Data & Transactional Functions repair for application #application_id:
No Data/Transactional Function calibration problem found.
Count AFP and EFP
Starting transaction reduced graph analysis...
Graph analysis done.
Reduced graph results is about to be saved on the analysis service
Saving reduced graph results...
Save call graphs of Transactions and provide also the number of Transaction links generated
Saved call graphs of transactions in application #application_id (#Number of transaction links generated).
Compute Transactions call graph has finished
Compute Transactional values on the discovered Transactions:
- Compute DET and FP for all Transactions, refer to Counting Function Points
- Compute object checksums Data Functions and Transactions, note that the checksum values are calculated by CAST AIP for objects resulting from an analysis and are used to determine whether an object has changed between successive snapshots
Finalizing function points computation...
Computation of application function point has finished
Report Transactional information
