             Framework for Network Resources Categorization
                     draft-jilongwang-opsawg-nrc-00

Abstract

   This memo discusses and defines a framework for network resources
   categorization that can identify and describe all the network to
   assist network management.  Now network resources have not been
   systematically defined and classified.  The objective of this draft
   is to illustrate the applicability of framework for network resources
   categorization through use cases, then discuss the basic methodology
   and propose a not relatively mature framework for continued
   supplement and improvement.
