Estimating Footprints of Model Operations


When performed on a model, a set of operations (e.g., queries or model transformations) rarely uses all the information present in the model. Unintended underuse of a model can indicate various problems: the model may contain more detail than necessary or the operations may be immature or erroneous. Analyzing the footprints of the operations { i.e., the part of a model actually used by an operation { is a simple technique to diagnose and analyze such problems. However, precisely calculating the footprint of an operation is expensive, because it requires analyzing the operation's execution trace. In this paper, we present an automated technique to es- timate the footprint of an operation without executing it. We evaluate our approach by applying it to 75 models and ve operations. Our technique provides software engineers with an e cient, yet precise, evaluation of the usage of their models.
