5 Worst Modules by Cyclomatic Complexity Title Module Complexity Gms-Ci Credit.CTWB.DocumentsSetup.Control.dll 157 Gms-Ci Credit.CommonControls.LookUp.Common.dll 143 Gms-Ci Credit.ApplicationManager.EditQuickTab.Control.dll 133 Gms-Ci Credit.CTWB.CovenantsSetup.Control.dll 121 Gms-Ci Credit.CTWB.CovenantsSetup.Service.dll 111 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.Metrics.dll 262 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.Common.dll 104 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.ServiceAgent.dll 82 Gus-Init1 ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll 67 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.Approvals.dll 59 TechnicalDebtTaskLib TechnicalDebtTaskLib.dll 22 TechnicalDebtTaskLib TechnicalDebtTaskLib_Accessor.dll 5 TechnicalDebtTaskLib BuildProcessTemplate.dll 5 TechnicalDebtTaskLib TechnicalDebtTaskLib.Tests.dll 3 Cyclomatic Complexity – Measures the structural complexity of the code. It is created by calculating the number of different code paths in the flow of the program. A program that has complex control flow will require more tests to achieve good code coverage and will be less maintainable.
McCabe Cyclomatic Complexity: the proof inthe pudding The results show that the files having a CC value of 11 had the lowest probability of being fault-prone (28%). Files with a CC value of 38 had a probability of 50% of being fault-prone. Files containing CC values of 74 and up were determined to have a 98% plus probability of being fault- prone.
5 Worst Modules by Maintainability title modulename maintainability Gms-Ci Credit.CommonControls.CADDDialog.Service.dll 48 Gms-Ci Credit.Metrics.Preference.Control.dll 49 Gms-Ci Credit.CTWB.DocumentsReceipt.Control.dll 50 Gms-Ci Credit.CTWB.DocumentsHistory.Control.dll 53 Gms-Ci Credit.CommonControls.ConflictInformation.Control.dll 53 Gus-Init1 Halos.Xml.DocGen.Generator.dll 56 Gus-Init1 Halos.Xml.DocGen.DocumentFactory.dll 71 Gus-Init1 Halos.Configuration.DynamicConfigurationManager.dll 74 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.Metrics.dll 75 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.ServiceAgent.dll 78 Gus-Init1 GUS.WinApplication.BulletinBoard.dll 78 TechnicalDebtTaskLib TechnicalDebtTaskLib.Tests.dll 66 TechnicalDebtTaskLib BuildProcessTemplate.dll 75 TechnicalDebtTaskLib TechnicalDebtTaskLib_Accessor.dll 78 TechnicalDebtTaskLib TechnicalDebtTaskLib.dll 79 The maintainability index is a synthesis of three metrics: cyclomatic complexity, lines of code, and computational complexity. Its values are not expressed in units. MAX(0,(171 - 5.2 * ln(Halstead Volume) - 0.23 * (Cyclomatic Complexity) - 16.2 * ln(Lines of Code))*100 / 171)
