Host category

Aim:

Explain what category the host belongs to.

The Node class doesn't have an attribute to specify which category it belongs to. It could be a good idea to indicate whether the Node is a router, a virtual machine or something else.

Solution 1:

Add an enumeration category in Host Class

Impacted Class Proposed Field Type
Node category Enum

Pros

Cons

Meetings:

30/10/2015 Meeting: Category fields are very frequent in other formats. It is a good way to facilitate processing automation and improve understandability for the user.

GH: This field already exists for an Analyzer in Analyzer.class. We should remove Analyzer.class in order to make this information available for all nodes. Creating a dictionnary will be necessary.

YV: I can't see the link between analyzer.class and node.category. Must have missed something...
