What are common properties of ArchiMate elements you use?

On the forum there are several examples of properties people use to enrich their models. One of Hervé's example of the specialization plugin adds the cost of a node as a property and one of the jArchi examples uses maturity.

What other common properties do you use in your models? I know this is different for each situation, but am interested in what others do.



Personally, as a technical architect, I use technical properties like:

Nodes and Devices:
   - cpu (sockets, cores, hyperthread for x86 hardware, cores for x86 VMs, CE and VP for AIX)
   - brand and model for hardware
   - virtualization solution for VMs
   - ram
   - hdd (volumes and storage class)
   - network interfaces
   - replication mechanism
   - backup requirement
   - SLA

System Software:
   - brand
   - version

   - City
   - Room reference

etc ...

I effectively use the form plugin to present the properties and not forget one :-)

Hope this helps

Best regards
