Klocwork Review

One of the best tools available for static analysis. There are some false warnings issued.

What is most valuable?

It is one of the best tools available for static analysis.

How has it helped my organization?

This tool was already rolled out in our projects at Delphi Technical Center in Bangalore, India. Though we had a QAC tool for MISRA checks, Klocwork was preferred for complete code base static analysis before projects go to production.

For all GM projects, this tool is used to perform static analysis. It provides a nice report, so all manual efforts in analyzing the code base are completely removed.

What needs improvement?

There are some false warnings found which eventually are not considered for a fix after the team reviewed the source code.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the system for around three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable, reliable and has not shown any difference in the results for multiple runs.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not tried to scale yet, but it was sufficient for our current projects.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not encountered any problems at my level. I have no idea how the technical support is.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using QAC and Klocwork at my previous company. At my current organization, we use Polyspace.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was in place when I arrived.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have no idea about pricing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was not involved in the tool evaluation process.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend this tool as one of the best to be used for static analysis and should at least be tried.
