The way that I have my environment configured is by categorizing my nodes. This can be achieved via custom properties or by using existing columns such as Comments in the NodesCustomProperties. For instance, lets say you have servers, switches, and routers. You can classify each node by type, tag the servers as 'Servers', switches as 'Switch', and routers as 'Route' or any naming standard that accommodates to your environment. This will allow you to make changes based on device type via the Solarwinds website and provide a foundation for reporting.
This document has a good foundation for learning more about leveraging custom properties.
