                            Multicast Model
               draft-zhang-mboned-multicast-info-model-01

Abstract

   This document intents to provide a general and all-round multicast
   model, which tries to stand at a high level to take full advantages
   of existed multicast protocol models to control the multicast
   network, and guides the deployment of multicast service.  And also,
   there will define several possible RPCs about how to interact between
   multicast info model and multicast protocol models.  This multicast
   information model is mainly used by the management tools run by the
   network operators in order to manage, monitor and debug the network
   resources used to deliver multicast service, as well as gathering
   some data from the network.

1.  Introduction

   Currently, there are many multicast YANG models, such as PIM, MLD,
   and BIER and so on.  But all these models are distributed in
   different working groups as separate files and focus on the protocol
   itself.  Furthermore, they cannot describe a high-level multicast
   service required by network operators.

   This document intents to provide a general and all-round multicast
   model, which tries to stand at a high level to take full advantages
   of these aforementioned models to control the multicast network, and
   guides the deployment of multicast service.

   This multicast information model is mainly used by the management
   tools run by the network operators in order to manage, monitor and
   debug the network resources used to deliver multicast service, as
   well as gathering some data from the network.
