Welcome to the home of Krakatau Essential Project Manager
Measuring churn metrics, changed source lines of code & changed logical lines of code


A Graphical User Interface for multi-language projects... Krakatau Essential PM

Krakatau Essential PM makes using EPM (our market leading changed SLOC) tool even easier. Featuring a carefully designed GUI to facilitate fast and efficient project creation Krakatau EPM allows software professional to compare two versions of a software project and within seconds view changed, new and deleted files and SLOC values. Krakatau EPM enables the user to take snapshots of the software project and pinpoint areas of the source code that are changing too frequently or unexpectedly (without authorisation). In this respect, project management, quality and control are clearly improved.

Multi-Language Projects

Krakatau Essential PM can be used with EPM, our command line tool, to provide a complete solution to measuring changed, new and deleted SLOC. Krakatau Essential PM automatically creates HTML, XML and CSV reports as well as MySQL data files. KEPM also provides traditional LOC/SLOC metrics including Halstead size metrics. In single project mode KEPM displays LOC/SLOC/Halstead metrics for individual (non-comparison) projects.

EPM now features churn metrics, giving you the ability to tell at-a-glance how much change has occurred between two projects. Churn metrics include:

  • CRN_SLOC: Churn Source lines of code: total changed, new and deleted source lines of code.
  • CRN_LLOC: Churn Logical lines of code: total changed, new and deleted logical lines of code.
  • CRN_FILE: Churn Files: total number of changed, new and deleted files.

Configure Krakatau Essential PM to suit your file extensions using
a simple XML configuration file

Krakatau Essental PM and EPM are true Multilanguage Project tools. If your project includes Ada, ASP.NET, C/C++, C#, IDL, Java, JSP, Oracle SQL, Perl, PHP, VB/VB.net, VHDL or XML then EPM will parse all these language files concurrently and report on all language files in one single project report! New language support can be added on request.
