    251 In the private ExoGENI wiki documentation areas there is a starting point for collecting [https://wiki.exogeni.net/doku.php?id=private:sites:start site data], but it does not have the level of information defined for this test case.

     253'''Evaluation Results:''' [[Color(orange,Partial)]]
     254
     255No site information was found in the public pages, but the private ExoGENI wiki area has a [https://wiki.exogeni.net/doku.php?id=private:sites:start Sites] page captures each rack site.  All site sub-pages consistently showed that the following are being tracked: "Site Address", , "Site Contacts", "Public IP Space", and "Private IP Space". 
     256
     257Some sites sub-pages inconsistently may have any one of these topics: "Rack Requirements", "Head Node Interfaces", "Public Internet Connectivity", "Management Switch Layout", "Dataplane Switch Layout", "Out-of-band Connectivity", "iSCI Addresses"
     258
     259Suggestion: Creating a consistent template for each sub-page for gathering site specific data may help ensure consistency.
