Leveraging CMDBf

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

Specification

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


Overview

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
  • Need sequence diagram for use case

Requirements

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....)

  • Query
    • Implement the CMDBf as a Muse capability. Bind to the CMDBf API
    • Start on Binding to Ali's API
    • Map CMDBf query to convenience APIs for SML repo, Stat repo, and CBE repo (this is the data set issues)
