Coupling metrics are an established way to measure software architecture quality with respect to modularity. Static coupling metrics are obtained from the source or compiled code of a program, while dynamic metrics use runtime data gathered e.g., by monitoring a system in production. We study weighted dynamic coupling that takes into account how often a connection is executed during a system's run. We investigate the correlation between dynamic weighted metrics and their static counterparts. We use data collected from four different experiments, each monitoring production use of a commercial software system over a period of four weeks. We observe an unexpected level of correlation between the static and the weighted dynamic case as well as revealing differences between class- and package-level analyses.
