I would like to know if we need to mention the "Cordinality/Multiplicities" in Deployment diagram. Suppose, If I want to mention the servers in the clustered environment, should I just mention that as comments/notes, or Do I need to have the same nodes and artifacts mentioned as many time needed in the cluster?

Please clarify.

i dont remember any official guidelines on this.

You have two options
- Represent multiple nodes fpr each hardware profile on the deployment digram and mention that each node represents a physical node
- Represent single node for each hardware profile and mention in stereotype and notes..the number of nodes for each profile..

i remember using the first approach..

My SCEA experience:
I agree. Here's the link:
