Code Coverage

This guide has instructions to generate code coverage report on your local machine in HTML or plain text.

Install required command-line tool (gcovr) and configure the project to generate temporary profiling files:

  1. Install gcovr on your machine: sudo easy_install gcovr

  2. When configuring, add option "--with-coverage" (e.g., ./waf configure --with-tests --with-coverage). If the build or running unit tests requires other packages, all the packages should be configured with the option "--with-coverage".

To create code coverage report in HTML format, follow these steps:

  1. After building the project and running unit tests, use gcovr to generate detailed code coverage report in html format. The following is a one-liner:
    mkdir build/coverage; gcovr -r . --object-directory=build --html --html-details -o build/coverage/coverage.html

  2. Use any browser to open build/coverage/coverage.html to see the code coverage report.

To create code coverage report in plain text format, follow these steps:

  1. After building the project and running unit tests, use gcovr to generate detailed code coverage report in plain text. The command is:
    gcovr -r . --object-directory=build --html-details -o build/coverage.txt

  2. Use any plain text editor/reader to open build/coverage.txt to see the code coverage report.

To view the detailed code coverage report on Jenkins for builds triggered by Gerrit

  1. Click on the build link that Jenkins posted as a comment on Gerrit.

  2. Click on the label "code-coverage" under "Configurations".

  3. Click on "Cobertura Coverage Report" to see the detailed code coverage report for the build.
