Dont Forget To Label Your Network Cables: Good Practice For Network Engineers
I really don't like taking the time to do this, but it IS really a good idea to label your cables to where they go. I do this in switch configurations, like with the description command (in Cisco) or the port-name command (in Brocade). But Im talking about a real, physical label, like the one below. It really just helps anyone coming behind you to identify what cables go where without actually having to trace it down or any number of other methods to find out what does where (especially with no downtime).
