  1. Export metrics

    Since I'm using the tool to analyze and visualize large databases and their dependencies, it would be very useful to be able to export certain metrics of selected or all objects.
    You already have a metric called "relative importance", but I have found no way to sort all the objects by this. Exporting this and other metrics would be extremely valuable to be able to further analyze the dependencies.

    Potential metrics could also include:
    - Number of dependencies
    - Number of dependents
    - Relative size (e.g. # of columns, number of lines for SPs)
    - Level in the hierarchy (how…

    • Don't overwrite manually control of layout when adding an object

      There are lots of layout options. Sometimes I lay things out just the way I want them. But when I add a new object, the layout changes completely. I want the ability to MANUALLY control the layout, and not have to do it all over when I add a new object.

        • color dependencies by object type/reference

          The diagram should color different object types (background or enclosing frame) an highlight external dependencies with a slightly different color.

          • Computed Columns - Causes Self Reference

            Problem with Dependency Tracker - If there are computed columns on a table it make self reference to itself. This should be optional or fixed as it is not a true self reference.

              • OutOfMemory on large databases

                I got OutOfMemory when trying to process a large database with lots of tables/user functions, stored procedures.

                Please either make x64 bit version (preferred option) to allow usage of bigger memory amount or patch x86 version with editbin (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14186256/net-out-of-memory-exception-used-1-3gb-but-have-16gb-installed)

                P.S. As a workaround "editbin" hack can be used locally, not that's not very convenient

                  you used to be able to Zoom in and out with Mouse Wheel. The standard behaviours is when pressing the 'Ctrl' key and using the mouse wheel you can zoom in and out on size scale, where the only thing that works now is the [+] and [-] buttons

                  • Command Line Options

                    I would like to see command line options for Dependency Tracker. We have automated build processes that make use of the XML export from Dependency Tracker. It would be great if we could trigger a refresh of the Dependency project and export XML as port of our automated build process.

                      • Option to ignore/hide tSQLt objects

                        Similar to SQL Compare, provide an option to ignore all Test (tSQLt) objects to improve performance and avoid cluttering the diagram.

                          • Show FK names over dependency lines

                            On the lines between objects, it would be great to see the names of foreign key constraints. I know that 99% of other users would probably not care, since most people just take the default. But I craft mine to be very explanatory of why there is a relationship there, in the business sense.

                                  You have the "Show Column View" but this shows for ALL objects. It would be good if you could individually set objects to show columns or not.

                                  Also if there are a large number of columns, allow them to be shrunk and use a scrollable list (the size should be definable via settings.

                                      • Show Constraints type graphically

                                        Makes it is easy to see if a constraint is only a Foreign Key or if it updates and/or deletes rows in the referenced table.

                                        • Allow config changes to animation as across a RDP connection it is really slow.

                                          Simply the ability to switch off the animation sequence during reapply as over an internet RDP session it is unworkable.
