C/C++ SonarQube Plugin

Standard metrics: The plugin counts the number of lines of code. It also comes with other standard code metrics. Some of them are related to your code organization.

Directories and Files dependencies: The DSM provided by SonarQube show the dependencies at the file level, and we can easily detect the dependencies weight between directories, files and their dependency cycles.

CppDepend metrics: The plugin provides some useful design metrics like: Afferent coupling (Ca), Efferent coupling (Ce), Instability (I)

Abstractness vs Instability: The main sequence line (dotted) in the above diagram shows the how abstractness and instability should be balanced.

Code Duplication: The CPD which is a powerful tool to detect duplications is used to calculate some useful metrice about duplications.
