ConfD’s main strength is to quickly provide a set of full featured, high-quality, programmable northbound interfaces to manage the configuration of network elements using transactions. Because operational state data is also important, ConfD provides various APIs to integrate with components of the network element’s application architecture for both configuration and operational state data.
This application note "ConfD Operational Data and External Databases" describes and explains some advanced concepts of the Data Provider API (DP API) related to operational state data for the “pull” approach. The goal of this application note is to give some guidance to the many use cases and features supported by ConfD for retrieving operational data and learn how to utilize ConfD where operational state data is provided.
We recommend reading this application note with the previously released “Inside the ConfD Operational Data Provider API” application note and the ConfD User Guide chapter on operational state data, external database, and the DP API, CDB API, and Management Agent API (MAAPI) documentation.
By choosing the industry standards of NETCONF and YANG, It became clear to Mavenir that Tail-f’s ConfD's solution would deliver the needed capabilities without affecting current and future investments. ConfD not only delivered the needed capabilities, but also provided Mavenir with additional configuration flexibility taking away the need to hand code interfaces, which significantly decreased the risk of introducing errors.
