Data Model Overview

Introduction to the Redfish data model

  • All resources linked from a Service Entry point (root) - Always located at URL: /redfish/v1
  • Major resource types structured in ‘collections’ to allow for standalone, multinode,or aggregated rack-level systems - Additional related resources fan out from members within these collections
  • ComputerSystem: properties expected from an OS console - Items needed to run the “computer” - Roughly a logical view of a computer system as seen from the OS
  • Chassis: properties needed to locate the unit with your hands - Items needed to identify, install or service the “computer” - Roughly a physical view of a computer system as seen by a human
  • Managers: properties needed to perform administrative functions - aka: the systems management subsystem (BMC)
