Just as “time waits for no one”, the world of NETCONF & YANG isn’t standing still. This applies directly to IETF standards, they evolve as real-world experience is gained. Datastores are a good example of this.
Originally, the NETCONF RFCs only specified the set of datastores to be Startup, Running, and Candidate. More recently, Network Management Datastore Architecture (NMDA) was specified in RFC 8342. NMDA extends the original set of NETCONF datastores by adding two new datastores: Intended and Operational. Additionally, RFC 8526 was published to specify NETCONF extensions for working with NMDA including new RPCs such as <get-data> and <edit-data>. RFC 8527 specifies similar extensions for RESTCONF.
Tune in to this webinar on-demand as we discuss the purpose of these new datastores and how they can be used. This webinar will also address the reasons for introducing NMDA, the new extensions defined for NETCONF and RESTCONF to support NMDA, how NMDA can have an effect on how YANG modules are written, and how NMDA is supported in ConfD.
