How To Add More Details To Your Network Diagrams

By HakDor ·
Hello guys,

I have recently been designing and working with Visio in my spare time. However did any one realize just how simple and basic our network symbols have become? For example a server symbol only shows a server graphic,but what if we could add more details to these symbols like what their relationship is on the network?

If we did provide some level of detail within each symbol then we'd be able to better illustrate how different devices are working on a network. These details could be structured in a layered type format in which each process is below another. Sort of like a sandwich. :)

I have attached a blog post below that includes some screenshots that illustrate what I'm talking about.

I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on this matter. :)
