From: The IESG <email@example.com> To: IETF-Announce <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: RFC Editor <email@example.com>, netconf mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, netconf chair <email@example.com> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) Base Notifications' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-netconf-system-notifications-07.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) Base Notifications' (draft-ietf-netconf-system-notifications-07.txt) as a Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Network Configuration Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Dan Romascanu and Ron Bonica. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-netconf-system-notifications/
Technical Summary The NETCONF protocol provides mechanisms to manipulate configuration datastores. However, client applications often need to be aware of common events such as a change in NETCONF server capabilities, that may impact management applications. Standard mechanisms are needed to support the monitoring of the base system events within the NETCONF server. This document defines a YANG module that allows a NETCONF client to receive notifications for some common system events. Working Group Summary The document has been longly discussed in the Working Group, including several WG Last Calls. The comments and reviews helped to improve the document a lot and the current version reflects the consensus of the Working Group. There was some debate on the scope of the draft. Kent Watsen was the only person who proposed the document to cover a much bigger scope. The system-startup notification has been removed after some discussion. The last WGLC did raise only minor issues. The changes have been accepted by the WG with some additional discussion and bug fixing. Document Quality It is expected that NETCONF implementations will be extended once this document gets published as proposed standard to support system notifications. Personnel Mehmet Ersue is the Document Shepherd for this document Dan Romascanu is the Responsible Area Director.
