AixBOMS Graphical Editors for Easy-to-Use and Secure Management of CMDB data

Graphics-Based Icon Editor for Visualization of Rack Components

Visualize your Network Components


Within AixBOMS, the Icon Editor is a fully integrated graphics tool where you can save and edit photo-realistic or schematic icons for technical components and their child components which are to be documented and managed within distribution cabinets. Once a background icon has been uploaded – it is possible to make use of images made available in standard formats (jpg, gif, png, svg) by the component‘s manufacturer –, it provides the photo-realistic image to be displayed in the RackView Editor.

In a second step, objects required for the documentation of connections – typically ports and slots – can be added. The port and slot types, technology, and icons available for a specific component are automatically taken from its database template.

Tools available for icon refinement in the Icon Editor include options for zooming, alignment, rulers, arranging, rotation, and tooltips which provide detailed information for objects displayed in the editor. This makes it easy to complete even the most sophisticated and complex of icon creation projects.

Once icons have been created, they are linked with the template definitions available in the database. They can now be displayed and managed in the RackView Editor. Ports and slots have become interactive objects. For example, network cards or hard drives may be inserted into slots; ports may be connected with one another or to cable objects. All these operations are supported by business rules automatically doing background consistency and plausibility checks.
