Active Directory diagram - Site links

This AD diagram example was redesigned from the picture "Site links" from the book "Active Directory for Dummies".
"Site links represent the Active Directory replication paths between sites.
These paths are manually defined so that the designer has control over which network links the replication traffic occurs on. These site links also control how clients are directed to domain controllers when there’s no DC in the client’s local site. Each site link has the following attributes:
(1) Connected sites: A site link is defined by the sites to which it connects. A site link can connect two or more sites together.
(2) Network transport: Site links support replication communication over IP-based RPCs or with the Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP). You normally want to use RPC whenever possible, but you can use SMTP when the sites you’re linking don’t support RPC.
(3) Cost: Each site link has a cost associated with it. Costs are used to assign preferences to links that determine which link should be followed when multiple link paths are available between sites. The cost represents what it “costs” to use this site link relative to the other site links and affects replication traffic as well as how users are assigned a domain controller. Links with lower cost values have preference over links with higher cost values. Cost values range from 1–32,767; the default being 100.
(4) Frequency: The frequency value defines how often a replication occurs
when using this site link (the replication latency). You can configure the time between replications from a minimum of 15 minutes to a maximum of 10,080 minutes (one week). The default frequency is 180 minutes.
(5) Schedule: The schedule dictates when this link is active and available for replication between the sites. The schedule can also control which days of the week the link is available. Normally, the schedule is set so that the link is available 24 hours a day, but you can set up different schedules on a per-day-of-the-week basis.
By creating a site link, you enable two or more sites to be connected and to share the same site link attributes (transport, cost, frequency, and schedule). By default, site links create transitive connectivity between sites.
If you create a site link between sites A and B and another site link between
sites B and C, an automatic connection (known as a site link bridge) is created between sites A and C..." [Steve Clines and Marcia Loughry, Active Directory® For Dummies®, 2nd Edition. 2008]

The vector stencils library "Bank UML object diagram" contains 11 shapes for drawing UML object diagrams.
Use it for object-oriented modeling of your bank information system.
"In the Unified Modeling Language (UML), an object diagram focuses on some particular set of objects and attributes, and the links between these instances. A correlated set of object diagrams provides insight into how an arbitrary view of a system is expected to evolve over time. ...
Each object and link on an object diagram is represented by an InstanceSpecification. This can show an object's classifier (e.g. an abstract or concrete class) and instance name, as well as attributes and other structural features using slots. Each slot corresponds to a single attribute or feature, and may include a value for that entity. ...
The name on an instance specification optionally shows an instance name, a ':' separator, and optionally one or more classifier names separated by commas. The contents of slots, if any, are included below the names, in a separate attribute compartment. A link is shown as a solid line, and represents an instance of an association. ...
An object instance may be called an instance specification or just an instance. A link between instances is generally referred to as a link. Other UML entities, such as an aggregation or composition symbol (a diamond) may also appear on an object diagram." [Object diagram. Wikipedia]

How to Create a Rack Diagram in ConceptDraw PRO

A Rack Diagram represents the rack mounting of network and computer equipment that is installed as a server. Rack diagrams are used by system administrators and network architectors when making a decision regarding the purchase of network equipment. It is used to show how a particular server configuration can be composed, without making its physical installation. ConceptDraw PRO enhanced with the Rack Diagrams Solution can be successfully used for making various rack diagrams. It's important that the solution used to create a rack diagram contains templates that stick to industry standards, and supplies a big selection of device icons to cover multiple types of equipment for a number of network configurations.

"As with the Process Schematic, the correctness of the Object Schematic and
associated elaborations are confirmed through validation with the domain expert. After reviewing the Transition Schematic, the domain expert observes that the allowable state transitions displayed in the schematic do not include those representative of a failed request. ...
The domain expert also identified transitions through which the identity of the object was preserved and transitions where the object was actually transformed into an entirely different object. The domain expert’s comments to the analyst yield the schematic
depicted in Figure 5-21." [IDEF3 Process Description Capture Method Report AL-TR-1995-XXXX. idef.com/pdf/Idef3_fn.pdf]

Bubble diagrams in Landscape Design with ConceptDraw PRO

Bubble Diagrams are the charts with a bubble presentation of data with obligatory consideration of bubble's sizes. They are analogs of Mind Maps and find their application at many fields, and even in landscape design. At this case the bubbles are applied to illustrate the arrangement of different areas of future landscape design, such as lawns, flowerbeds, playgrounds, pools, recreation areas, etc. Bubble Diagram helps to see instantly the whole project, it is easy for design and quite informative, in most cases it reflects all needed information. Often Bubble Diagram is used as a draft for the future landscape project, on the first stage of its design, and in case of approval of chosen design concept is created advanced detailed landscape plan with specification of plants and used materials. Creation of Bubble Diagrams for landscape in ConceptDraw PRO software is an easy task thanks to the Bubble Diagrams solution from "What is a Diagram" area. You can use the ready scanned location plan as the base or create it easy using the special ConceptDraw libraries and templates. Read more

"Additional context-setting information is then added to the Transition Schematic as required. For example, the domain expert’s description indicated that purchase requests involving direct projects require an authorization signature. Additionally, the description included discussion of a constraint that account managers or their designated backups must approve all requests involving their projects. This information is noted directly on the schematic. The resulting Object Schematic is displayed in Figure 5-22."

A conceptual diagram of a global vehicular network describes the principles of communication between vehicles, earth-based nodes, and space-based nodes in a wireless network. It illustrates the concept of architecture within global vehicular networks.
"Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are advanced applications which, without embodying intelligence as such, aim to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport and traffic management and enable various users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks.
...
Intelligent transport systems vary in technologies applied, from basic management systems such as car navigation; traffic signal control systems; container management systems; variable message signs; automatic number plate recognition or speed cameras to monitor applications, such as security CCTV systems; and to more advanced applications that integrate live data and feedback from a number of other sources, such as parking guidance and information systems; weather information; bridge deicing systems; and the like."
