Greetings ranchers,

Does anyone have an idea how to properly depict firewalls/DMZ on a deployment diagram? When it comes to network topology, UML seems a little lacking.
Also, any ideas on depicting clusters will be appreciated. After a long deliberation, I have settled on using a node with a <<cluster>> stereotype along with a tagged value for the number of nodes, e.g "{min nodes=2}'

Thanks,
Drago

Hi..

Hope this helps..

Firewall:
We both are sailing in the same boat, I mentioned firewall as a long, thin rectangle with a text FIREWALL.

Clustered Environment:
I mentioned 3 nodes in a rectangle and named the rectangle as clustered environment.


Thanks,
Sri.

Hi Sri,

Thanks for your suggestion. If I was doing this for a real client, I would do that without hesitation,
but it's not UML compliant and the project will be judged on UML comliance among other things...

Hi Drago,

I totally agree with you, I think I do not have other alternative as of now.

I'll dig more in UML before I submit my Part-II, if not I'll live with it.

Best Regards,
Sri.

hi

I am facing the same problem when I am doing my assignment. Well, actually I found following statement from wiki maybe could answer our questions about the cluster:

The nodes appear as boxes, and the artifacts allocated to each node appear as rectangles within the boxes. Nodes may have subnodes, which appear as nested boxes. A single node in a deployment diagram may conceptually represent multiple physical nodes, such as a cluster of database servers.

Here is the link of wiki: http://www.answers.com/topic/deployment-diagram

I just represented firewall as solid rectangles with text Firewall written on it.
 
Listen. That's my theme music. That's how I know I'm a super hero. That, and this tiny ad told me:
