Trend Monitoring

NDepend lets create trend charts. Trend charts are made of trend metrics values logged over time at analysis time. More than 50 trend metrics are available per default and it is easy to create your own trend metrics.



Trend charts are displayed on the NDepend dashboard. Some trend charts are available per default to show:
  • Lines of Code
  • Number of Code Rules Violated and number of Code Rules Violations
  • Code Coverage per Tests
  • Max and Average values for various Code Quality Metrics
  • Third-Party Usage
Trend charts can be customized and it is easy to create your own trend charts to show default trend metrics and/or custom trend metrics.

Trend Charts on the NDepend Dashboard

Measuring a code base trends with NDepend comes with many flexible sub-features:
  • Lines of Code
  • Trend charts can be created and customized.
  • New Trend metrics can be written through CQLinq queries. For example here is the definition of a trend metric that counts the numbers of types implementing the interface System.IDisposable:

  • Trend charts can be displayed and analyzed both in the main NDepend UI and in the reports.
  • NDepend.API comes with a sub API to read/write trend metrics values logged and to force log.
