This object type, together with object type Server, is used to document remote procedure calls.

An object of type Node documents the physical machine containing the server.

In the predefined Predict metastructure, a node can have passive and active associations of the following types:

Valid passive association: "Contained in NW"
Valid active association: "Contains SV"

This document covers the following topics:

Node Maintenance Menu

This menu is called with function code M and object code NO in a Predict main menu, or with the command MAINTAIN NODE.

The Node Maintenance menu contains only global attributes. See Global Attributes.

The functions are described in the section Maintenance in the Predict Reference documentation.

Add a Node Screen

The following screen appears for the function Add a Node. The screens for functions Copy and Modify are similar.

Node Retrieval

Information on node objects is gathered using standard retrieval functions. See the section Retrieval in the Predict Reference documentation.

Output Options for Node Retrieval

The output options valid for this object type are identical to those for object type dataspace. See Output Options for Dataspace Retrieval.
