Is there a canonical way (no pun intended) to describe the purpose of a specific machine?
I have to administer several hosts all with the same hostname ("www"). On the shell prompt i can not distinguish, which machine i am currently working on. I'd like to have a textfile eg. /etc/purpose in which i can put the description of the machine. Of course I could implement this quite easily, but would rather use a standardized solution. By the way, I am currently running ubuntu from 10.04 to 12.04.
