Some questions related to ComputerSystem property SystemType = PhysicallyPartitioned.
This seems to be used for ComputerSystems in Resource – blocks when composing them into ComputerSystem with SystemType = Composed. (Looking e.g. at mockup “Bladed Partitions” in Redfish developer hub.) The Mockup describes the blade ComputeBlock (with SystemType PhysicallyPartitioned) as “represents PhysicallyPartitionedSystem ResourceBlock, from which System can be Composed”. But computerSystem schema LongDescription of enum PhysicallyPartitioned is “A SystemType of PhysicallyPartition is typically used when representating a single system constructed from one or more physical systems via a firmware or hardware-based service.", which indicates that rather the constructed (same as “composed”?) system should have system type “PhysicallyPartitioned”, which seems strange. Shouldn’t the composed system have systemType “composed”.. ? Can I assume that this enum LongDescription is a bit misleading, and should maybe be updated?
How and when should the following new ComputerSystem properties be used?
- “ConsumingComputerSystems” ("An array of references to ComputerSystems that are realized, in whole or in part, from this ComputerSystem."),
- “SupplyingComputerSystems” ("An array of references to ComputerSystems that contribute, in whole or in part, to the implementation of this ComputerSystem.").
And is there any dependency to the SystemTypes of involved ComputerSystems?
To me it sounds very similar to the use case for composed systems including “PhysicallyPartitioned” and “Composed” system types, but this use case uses Links properties of type ResourceBlock (from the Composed system) and Link ComputerSystem (from the ResourceBlock) according to Mockup “Bladed system”.
Is there any tutorial, mockup or other description for “SupplyingComputerSystems” and “ConsumingComputerSystems”?
