                NETCONF Support for Event Notifications
           draft-ietf-netconf-netconf-event-notifications-03

Abstract

   This document defines how to transport network subscriptions and
   event messages on top of the Network Configuration protocol
   (NETCONF).  This includes the full set of RPCs, subscription state
   changes, and message payloads needing asynchronous delivery.  The
   capabilities and operations defined in this document used in
   conjunction with [subscribe] are intended to obsolete [RFC5277].  In
   addition, the capabilities within those two documents along with
   [yang-push] are intended to enable an extract of a YANG datastore on
   a remote device.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines mechanisms that provide an asynchronous message
   notification delivery service for the NETCONF protocol [RFC6241]
   based on [subscribe].  This is an optional capability built on top of
   the base NETCONF definition.

   [subscribe] plus this transport specification document provides a
   superset of the capabilities previously defined in [RFC5277].  Newly
   introduced capabilities include the ability to have multiple
   subscriptions on a single NETCONF session, the ability to terminate
   subscriptions without terminating the client session, and the ability
   to modify existing subscriptions.

   In addition, [yang-push] plus the capabilities of this document
   provide a mechanism for a NETCONF client to maintain a subset/extract
   of an actively changing YANG datastore.
