@node is an instance of a namespace (see: Namespaces).
- Whenever you’re in a Console session, you are in the scope of an instance of @node.
- When you use Keyed Access to key into a namespace, the last namespace key will reference an instance of @node.
- An instance of @node is made available to you within your orchestration scripts.
@node is the Ruby object that encapsulates the current namespace.
See Navigation for the difference between the Console and Keyed-access.
