Gathering Metrics on a weekly/monthly basis
We have just started using CC for the code reviews and it has gone really well. However now I have to produce some metrics to show my superiors that we are A) doing them and B) are reviewing at an acceptable rate.
Although the report generator can give me some info none seem to be able to do it against time easily.
For example, if I wanted to see how many reviews are performed each week I would have to use the ‘Recently Completed Reviews’ report and adjust the date and then run for each week I wanted to analyse. There seems to be no easy way to automate this.
Similarly for review rate, the document http://support.smartbear.com/viewarticle/20739 proposes that Inspection Rate ( lines of code reviewed ) / ( hours to do the review ) is a useful metric, but I can’t see where the report generator produces this. I can set up a report to show LOC changed and Average Participant Time. But it does not give a total. I have to import it into excel add them up and do the maths myself. And repeat for each time period.
Can you advise on how I get these sort of time-based reports automatically?
