Klocwork Room for Improvement

AnirbanSarkar - PeerSpot reviewer
Head - Solution Management Group at Meteonic Innovation Pvt. Ltd.

What needs improvement in Klocwork, compared to other products in the market, is the dashboard or reporting mechanisms that need to be a bit more flexible. The Klocwork dashboard could be improved. Though it's good, it's not as good as some of the other products in the market, which is a problem. The reporting could be more detailed and easier to sort out because sorting in Klocwork could be a bit more time-consuming, mainly when sorting defects based on filters, compared to how it's done on other tools such as Coverity.

What I'd like added in the next release of Klocwork is the peer code review Cahoots which used to be a part of Klocwork, and the architecture analysis and both have been taken out of Klocwork. I found the two critical for specific deployments, so if those can be brought back to Klocwork, that would be very good.

Modern languages, such as Angular and .NET, should be included as a part of Klocwork. They have recently added Kotlin as a part of their project, but we would like to see more languages in Klocwork. That's the reason we are using Coverity as a backup for some of the other languages. 

I would like to see some more new guidelines added. As you know, this Klocwork tool is fully compliant with MISRA, CERT, and CWE, but a few coding guidelines are still not supported by Klocwork.

This solution could be improved if they offered support of more languages including Ada and Golang. They currently only support seven languages. 

In a future release, we would like to have architecture management added.

Klocwork has to improve its features to stay ahead of other free or low-cost solutions, like Visual Studio Code Analyzer.

I believe it should support more languages, such as Python and JavaScript.

I would like to see dynamic analysis as well.

When an upgrade is carried out it must be done on both the server and client side, which can make it a bit hectic for all projects to be configured on the private server. Every update that we receive requires of us a lengthy and involved process.

The project reporting status dashboard should also be addressed. As I am on the compliance team, I must open every project to resolve all issues.  The solution does not provide consolidated views. Meanwhile, Kuiwan has a very good feature on its dashboard.

Moreover, Klocwork makes a limited number of languages available to the user, only four. In addition, a good consolidated dashboard, in respect of compliance, would be nice to see.
