This document defines a YANG data model for the management of network
interfaces. It is expected that interface type specific data models
augment the generic interfaces data model defined in this document.
The data model includes configuration data, state data and counters
for the collection of statistics.
Working Group Summary
The normal WG process was followed and the documents reflect WG
consensus with nothing special worth mentioning except for the following.
While the working group felt that the set of documents was complete in
April 2013, there was a sense of unease about disparities between
operational state and configuration. Additional reviews during the last
call made it clear that it was desirable to deal with this by separating
operational state from configuration management and that this should have
been done from the beginning. The working group pulled the document back
from IESG review and worked to add this to the model.
This set of documents received extensive review within the working group
and ample time was spent to review and reconsider all design choices.
The working group also reached out to the IP directorate and received
additional review from Dave Thaler.
Thomas Nadeau is the document shepherd
Benoit Claise is the responsible Area Director.
