My naming is too simple..... If its a 5950x, thats what I name is, tacked on to the room its in. If I have 2 in the same room with the same CPU, its like "3900x living room, 3900x living room 2".Just need a theme for the names. My Raspberry Pis are named after pie. 2GB pies get 2 word names (key lime, lemon chiffon, etc). 4GB pis are named after fruit pie (strawberry, cherry, etc). 8GB pies are named after custard pies (pumpkin, pecan, etc).
Larger computers are named after Greek Gods or Greek Mythology - gaming machine is Ares, largest Water cooled PC is Poseidon, the NAS is Olympus, etc.
No labels. I have 3 stacks - 2 GB pis are in one stack in one of these:How do you know which is which physically? Label them with a label maker? I've tried to name them something that distinguishes them, but it's gotten confusing now that I have stuff like Ryzen3900x, Ryzen3900xnew, Ryzen3900x980ti, etc
At work we use data center code the host is located in, 1 digit for availability domain, 2 digit for rack number number, 3 characters, which includes the hypervisor identifier. For example: slc109acq.Hmm, mark the calendar, a mod has had to step into a DC thread!
Anyway, my ragtag fleet is usually named after the motherboard model number, but even that got complicated when duplicates cropped up. It would be interesting to know how the big boys do it, when there is replication of exact specs over hundreds (thousands?) of discrete hosts.
This is exactly the nomenclature which I use for my home computers.With over 100K computers company-wide, and nearly 8,000 just at my site, computer naming is a pretty big deal.
We use this format:
2 letter Country Code, 4 letter Site Code, 2 letter Computer Type, - (hyphen), computer property/asset number.
I also just want to thank the TAAT Moderators and Forum Members for allowing me to semi hijack this thread in your house. My only goal was to change the discussion from the past to how we can move forward as a group. We can't change the past but with constructive discourse we can change the future of FB.All this said, I would suggest that a new thread be started to continue the discussion.
So rather than commenting here, I am looking forward to seeing everyone who has an opinionDiscourse - noun
written or spoken communication or debate.
"the language of political discourse"
