These are usage based shapes, deciphering cable coding. Mostly aimed at documenting NetApp usage, but can be used or modified for other purposes as well. I have also included Nutanix specific cable decoder box even though I don’t have any other Nutanix specific shapes in my stencils (yet).
Otherwise their isnt’ much to say about these. It would be like explaining a GUI, if you have to do that, your GUI isn’t very good:).
There are few variations of cable decoder boxes in the Cables stencils. Have a look and choose the one you like or make your own.
Example: Generic NetApp Cable Decoder Box
Example: Separate Cable Decoder boxes by Cable Type
Example: NetApp Fabric MetroCluster Cable Decoder Boxes
Example: Nutanix Cable Decoder Box
