This document describes the gRPC Network Management Interface (gNMI), a network management protocol based on the gRPC RPC framework. gNMI supports retrieval and manipuation of state from network elements where the data is represented by a tree structure, and addressable by paths. The gNMI service defines operations for configuration management, operational state retrieval, and bulk data collection via streaming telemtry.
