MoDisco Tool - Metrics Visualization Builder

MoDisco Logo


Metrics, Visualizations, HTML, Excel, SVG


This generic tool is about building metrics visualizations in different formats (HTML and Excel for tabular representations, SVG for graphical ones like bar charts and pie charts) from any metrics data stored into models that conform to the provided generic Metrics metamodel.

This tool is provided by INRIA AtlanMod and its development has been supported by the IST European MODELPLEX project (MODELing solution for comPLEX software systems, FP6-IP 34081).

The overall approach applied by this tool is summarized in the following figure:

"Metrics Visualization Builder" Tool Overview

The tool is composed of a set of ATL model-to-model transformations that implement the different steps of the visualization building. The input Metrics model is first transformed into a Table model that provides a simple tabular representation of the data. Different visualization's formats specific models (i.e. HTML, Excel and SVG models) are then built from the Table model. These generated models are finally extracted into software readable files.

We provide below some examples of the visualizations that can be produced using the tool from a given Metrics model.

Bugzilla Metrics

This complete use case covers both the "Model Discovery" and "Model Understanding" phases. It is about discovering bugs information expressed in HTML format, building a Bugzilla model from these data, computing it in order to produce a Metrics model and finally building some visualizations of the generated metrics.
