Naming Conventions

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?

Re: Naming Conventions

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.
