CAST Measurement Service schema

  • When using any CAST products (CAST Enlighten, CAST Management Studio etc.) in a Microsoft SQL Server environment, make sure that the login you are using has been granted the VIEW SERVER STATE privilege. This is not necessary if the "sa" or "sysadmin" logins are used (not recommended), which already have this privilege. This privilege grants access to the server's current process list via master..sysprocesses or via sys.dm_exec_requests. This information is required by CAST products for internal management of database locking and the analyzer save process. To avoid product usage errors, users will be prevented from accessing the database if their login does not have access to the current process list. Please see Appendix - Login privileges for CAST Products for Supported Platforms for more information.

  • CAST does NOT support the installation of Analysis, Dashboard, Management and Measurement Services on "case insensitive" DBMS servers. This is particularly important if you plan to use a Microsoft SQL Server to host the CAST databases, which is by default configured as case insensitive. Please see Appendix - RDBMS requirements and configuration Supported Platforms for more information about Case Sensitivity/Insensitivity.

...

You need to use a 64-bit version of the Oracle Client software. If a 32-bit Oracle Client already exists on your machine, you need to install, in addition, a 64-bit Oracle Client. CAST is a 64-bit application and can only link to 64-bit client driver/layer DLLs. Please also read the sections Required third-party software and  Visual Basic analyzer and 64-bit compatibility in Supported TechnologiesPlatforms > Visual Basic Supported Platforms.

CAST Delivery Manager Tool(error)(error)(error)(error)(error)No client connection layer is required for packaging source code in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool. All connections are made via JDBC drivers delivered with the CAST Delivery Manager Tool.
CAST Management Studio(error)(error)(error)(tick)(error)

When analyzing IBM DB2-UDB source code:

  • a client connection layer or driver must be installed on the workstation that will be used to run the CAST Management Studio - i.e the machine on which the analysis will be executed. Please ensure that the client connection layer is compatible with the version of the database you are analyzing. CAST Supports the DB2 UDB 9.1, 10.1 and 10.5 connection layers.
  • you must create a 64bit ODBC User DSN containing an alias that matches the "host" name of the target server that was defined in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool and then transferred to the CAST Management Studio for each DB2 UDB server you want to analyze. You can find out more information about this in the CAST Management Studio help.


Info
Note that when analyzing IBM DB2 z/OS source code, an extractor must be executed prior to the packaging and analyzing phases.
