Not found as much as I'd like.
I can see an architecture, can see the database and where it lives, but
I can't see a data model that works.
if the problem is to track "dumb" infrastructure metadata, like
port::cableID::cabletray, then I can't get an event (e.g. SNMP) to
report a status change, and entropy eats at my data unless I spend
people time keeping it up to date. It's not the rendering of racks, it's
the quality of the data that's an issue.
I don't even know when (if?) this tracking becomes a problem. When is a
hardcopy wallchart not enough? At 50 servers? At 500 servers?
I saw a while back a finance industry comment that it's config errors,
not particularly backhoes, that are a significant source of their down
time. So you'd expect some NOC attention on inventorying cableIDs etc.,
but it's hard to find.
Now we are seeing some affordable (100GE at 4x10GE) services popping up,
I thought I'd like to see what the future reqs are for these interfaces
- more eggs in one basket maybe adds importance.
You are yourself, maybe, sitting on a hidden store of use cases for
infrastructure manageability? :-)
