Naming Conventions

Unanswered Question
Feb 11th, 2009

What do you think about the following naming convention....

L1-1-500-1-4-5124

L=facility

1=building

1=floor

500=room

1=rack

4=position on rack

5124=x.x.5.124 (last two octets of IP)

It makes it easy to troubleshoot using monitoring tools. If a device goes down, I can tell easily see the IP and location information, and respond accordingly.

Does this scheme violate good security standards?

What conventions are common in your experience?

We use one that is similar to yours so I would say it looks good. Concerning security, it's just the host name and as long as your securing your monitoring app, you should be good.

Hope that helps.
