I've started developing some web-based (RoR) software to
manage relay racks. The software should make it easy to
inventory racked equipment, tally the power consumption
for each rack, etc.
I'm hoping that youall may have some suggestions on the
specific functions that the software should perform. If
you know of existing software that performs similar or
strongly-related functions, please tell me about it!
Also, if you have a (smallish) rack installation which I
can document (ideally, as a public example), let me know.
The initial tables include:
buildings contain rooms
devices abstract units
racks contain units
rooms contain racks
units device instances
Once I have this in hand, I hope to add tables for:
cables connect units
circuits graphs of cables and units
plugs attachment points for cables
sockets attachment points for units
