Subject Re: Cassandra Graphical Modeling

I'm not trying to push Inkscape, but this may be helpful. I use it and
graphviz, depending on the circumstances.

If you create a basic template in Inkscape, you can use it to compose
structural views of things by rendering the XML/SVG from a model. It's
not a feature, per se, but just a way to take advantage of it's format
and command-line rendering capabilities.

It's been awhile since I've done it, but even basic things like
transforms are available. You can then invoke Inkscape in render-only
mode to produce different raster formats.  It's not as smart as
GraphViz for large layouts, but the finished product is more
customizable for smaller ones.
