A Deployment node is a deployment configuration node which is subclass of the AdminCollection node.
The following section describes the scenarios in which a Deployment node is created or removed.
Deployment node life cycle
The attributes of a Deployment node contain stable information about the collection of elements such as type of the deployment configuration and inherited attributes from the AdminCollection node such as name of the collection and so forth. Deployment node also inherits relationships from the AdminCollection node such as CloudRegion, Hosts and so on.
Deployment nodes are created from data collected through the cloud API calls.
The lifecycle of a Deployment node depends upon the details of the pattern that maintains/executes it.
The diagram below explains the creation process of the Deployment node:
A Deployment node is destroyed when it no longer exists in the API data. Aging is not applied to this type of node kind.
Deployment node attributes
The attributes of a Deployment node are as described in the following table below:
Attribute name and
Name of the deployment configuration.
Type of the deployment configuration.
Deployment node inherits atttributes from the AdminCollection node. For more information about these attributes, see AdminCollection node attributes.
Deployment node relationships
The relationships of a Deployment node are as described in the following table:
Virtual Machines that are a member of this Deployment.
Software Instances that are a member of this Deployment.
Load Balancers that are a member of this Deployment.
Deployment node inherits relationships from the AdminCollection node. For more information about these relationships, see AdminCollection node relationships.
