This document proposes an approach for modeling configuration and operational state data in YANG [RFC6020] that is geared toward network management systems that require capabilities beyond those typically envisioned in a NETCONF-based management system. The document presents the requirements of such systems and proposes a modeling approach to meet these requirements, along with implications and design patterns for modeling operational state in YANG.
