We are using Sonar 6.7.5. We are trying to determine the total number of bugs in Sonar to calculate the approximation of total number of bugs per 1000 lines of code (an industry standard to evaluate the quality fo code). I have calculated the total number of bugs by adding Violations, Major Violations, Critical Violations and Blocker violations. My question is, are these violations mutually exclusive? I thought they are based on what I see but I was not sure.
I see there are other kind of violations like New blocker violations, new critical violations etc but they are never populated in our case.
Thank you for your help
