Requirements and Installation
- Windows Vista/7
- Visual Studio 2010
- Professional or Ultimate (for NUnit)
- Ultimate (for Visual Studio Test Framework and TFS)
- NUnit (for running NUnit tests)
- Holmes plugin for Visual Studio
- Build workflow tasks for instrumenting TFS builds
- NUnit addin for collecting path coverage while running NUnit tests
Use Tools - Options - Holmes window to configure Holmes.
- Path threshold - The number of test cases in which a code path must be exercised for it to be considered a candidate root cause. Defaults to 10. Lowering this number enables Holmes to consider a large set of code paths. However, for low values of this threshold, resulting root causes may not be accurate.
- Symbol path - Path where Holmes should look for coverage symbol files. Defaults to the solution's root directory.
- Builds filter - Number of days for which build information should be fetched. Defaults to 90.
