               6TiSCH Operation Sublayer (6top) Interface
                  draft-ietf-6tisch-6top-interface-03

Abstract

   This document defines a generic data model for the 6TiSCH Operation
   Sublayer (6top), using the YANG data modeling language.  This data
   model can be used for future network management solutions defined by
   the 6TiSCH working group.  This document also defines a list of
   commands for the internal use of the 6top sublayer and/or to be used
   by implementers as an API guideline or basic specification.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a generic data model for the 6TiSCH Operation
   Sublayer (6top), using the YANG data modeling language defined in
   [RFC6020].  This data model can be used for future network management
   solutions defined by the 6TiSCH working group.  This document also
   defines a list commands internal to the 6top sublayer.  This data
   model gives access to metrics (e.g. cell state), TSCH configuration
   and control procedures, and support for the different scheduling
   mechanisms described in [I-D.ietf-6tisch-architecture].  The 6top
   sublayer addresses the set of management information and
   functionalities described in [I-D.ietf-6tisch-tsch].

   For example, network formation in a TSCH network is handled by the
   use of Enhanced Beacons (EB).  EBs include information for joining
   nodes to be able to synchronize and set up an initial network
   topology.  However, [IEEE802154e] does not specify how the period of
   EBs is configured, nor the rules for a node to select a particular
   node to join. 6top offers a set of commands so control mechanisms can
