for Metrics Differentials
is a command line based tool that lends is functionality to Configuration Control
tool scripts. RSM is typically used to determine the metrics difference
between baselines. This is performed with the RSM work files. The
following scenario details how to use RSM in a general CM task.
RSM configuration file (rsm.cfg) has several option for work files, they are:
# RSM will not process files in local directories when this
# flag is set. This will prevent recursive descent into
# these directories.
Do not process these local directories : Yes
Local directory names not processed : sccs,cvs,rcs
# The following path location specifies where work files
# are to be created. The path must be a location with write
# permissions. RSM will create work files in the current
# directory if no path is specified.
Work file location path :
# The following parameter, when set to Yes will cause
# the files stored into work files to be relative to the
# location where RSM began processing.
Relative Work Files : Yes
Differential Report Configuration File
The RSM work or
baseline differential report can be configured using the rsm_workdiff.cfg file
co-located with the rsm.lic file. This file can be used to specify which metrics
to include in the report and how removed file metrics contribute to the over
all report metrics. The user may choose to use a personal configuration for
this report using the -w "File cfg config_file_name.cfg" option.
RSM Work Differential Configuration File
The following runtime parameters effect how the baseline metrics differential
report is generated by RSM.
RSM -w report
