Say a device have very large number of entries (in millions) that need to be exported over NETCONF. Exporting such a big data at one go (and that too periodically) causes a performance penalty.
Conceptually this can be averted if manager can query for next N elements starting form a last known key. So one large query can be split into smaller queries of N elements.
Is there anyway to provide this query count and starting key etc over NETCONF rpc requests? Are there any other ways to achieve the same.
