Some of these look like patch panel rear connections. You don't repair these
if they break - you include enough spares for the life of the data centre
wiring, and the ability to expand them if necessary. There's no slack
loops on any of these -- they are each cut to exactly the right length
to run between the relevent patch panel sockets.
You are't supposed to use tie-wraps (even releaseable ones) any more, as
the sharp edges distort the cable sleeve and can affect performance in

For cables that aren't moved too much & aren't black I just use a waterproo

Somebody else installed them, and this is later troubleshooting?
I once saw a control panel where, when all the internal cable tray
covers were removed, spelled out 'HELP' in yellow wires against the
rest, which were red. This was in a US Car Assembly Plant.
And how do you do that from a "faulty" network socket 2 floors away?
Lift all the floor duct covers, clamber up and down the vertical
cable shafts, etc etc. I don't think so.
Labeling is essential and has been said a database that says what
should be connected to what via which cable. Some form of sensible
"what" scheme helps a lot as well "F2R101P15" is on the second floor
in room 101 port 15 (clockwise from the door (assuming only one
door...)). Not sure of a sensible way to locate floor boxes, X and Y
is obvious but how do you set the origin?
