Configuration Management Database (CMDB)

A configuration management database (CMDB) is a repository of information related to all the components of an information system.

The CMDB records CIs and details about the important attributes and relationships between CIs. Configuration managers usually describe CIs using three configurable attributes: Technical, Ownership, Relationship
