The quality of software architectures determines sustainability of the software to a large extent. Measuring sustainability of a software architecture both during early designs using scenarios and during evolution using scenarios and metrics, which is highly relevant in practice, have great impacts on software sustainability. Sustainability indicators and composite index are also used as powerful tools for policy making and public communication that enhanced software sustainability. Several initiatives exist on measuring sustainability of software's in diverse fields of study. This paper provides a general overview of measuring the impacts of software sustainability.
