The Yang-based OpenConfig project focuses on data models for common network devices and functions. The Telemetry project in particular is an option for VES.

Open Questions

Following are some open questions that have arisen in the consideration of YANG-based modeling for VES:

If JSON is preferred as the payload for VES data, how can that be provided when using YANG for modeling?RFC7951, and transformation via JSONXSL. 


Following are references collected in assessment of the OpenConfig Telemetry project.
