Creating deployment diagrams

You can use deployment diagrams to model the physical layout or topology of a system. Deployment diagrams describe the configuration of runtime processing nodes and the artifacts that are deployed on them.

About this task

You can create one or several deployment diagrams to illustrate the physical nodes on which your system executes or that support execution, as well as their physical connections and their relationships. You can add diagram elements to represent the nodes that exist in your system and you can add connectors to illustrate the relationships that exist between nodes.
Note: Deployment diagrams are distinct from deployment topologies, a different type of model. For information on deployment topologies, see Modeling deployment topologies.
