SoftLayer_Hardware_Component_Model_Generic

Overview

The SoftLayer_Hardware_Component_Model_Generic data type contains general information relating to a single SoftLayer generic component model. A generic component model represents a non-vendor specific representation of a hardware component. Frequently SoftLayer utilizes components from various vendors in the servers they provision. For Example: Several different vendors produce 6GB DDR2 memory. The generic component model for the 6GB stick of RAM encompasses every instance of this component regardless of make and model.

Local Properties

capacity

A generic component model's capacity. The capacity of a generic component model depends on the model itself. For Example: Hard drives have a capacity that reflects the amount of data that hard drive can store.

Type:

decimal

description

A brief description for a generic component model that typically defines it's function.

Type:

string

hardwareComponentTypeId

The internal identifier of the component type for a generic component model.

Type:

integer

id

A generic component model's internal identification number.

Type:

integer

units

The unit of measurement for the capacity of a generic component model.

Type:

string

upgradePriority

A generic component model's upgrade priority. The upgrade priority indicates the order a generic component model should be considered over other generic component models. A higher number indicates that a generic component model receives a higher upgrade preference in comparison to a generic component model with a lower priority number.
