How SmartRank works
The Klocwork static analysis engine is a sophisticated set of high-performing algorithms that operate on a representation of an application’s source code to determine control and data paths, and identify security, quality, and standards compliance issues. Many components of the SCA engine offer different factors used to calculate a ranking that a detected issue is a true issue. Based on a customizable threshold, this ranking is translated into SmartRank recommendations for the user, indicating that these issues should be reviewed and fixed first.
Klocwork is used in many of the largest, most demanding software development environments in the world. Try it on your code today by requesting a free product trial.
