Leveraging CMDBf

Revision as of 13:51, 8 August 2007 by Weitzelm.us.ibm.com (Talk | contribs) (Basic Use Case)

This page is the beginning of where we can begin our discussions on the CMDBf specification.


The CMDBf specification can be found here: http://cmdbf.org/


The COSMOS project intends to produce a reference implementation of a CMDBf Management Data Repository (MDR). The project will demonstrate how a client can use multiple MDRs through the CMDBf query interfaces and registration services to display information from multiple management systems. COSMOS will also create any additional infrastructure required to support the basic use case.

Basic Use Case

The image below is an overview of the most basic use case. Cosmos-cmdbf-overview.gif

  • Correct the picture: In the service broker, they both should be CMDBfQuery
  • Add Management Domain to picture... maybe another use case for bootstrapping


These are the high level requirements necessary to complete the implementation of CMDBf. We will break these down into bugzilla enhancement requests.

(Needs to be expanded on during the call... this is just a start....)
