We had a discussion at our company. It is about creating a configuration.
After sending an to create a specific configuration on a NETCONF device
you get a response. If the operation could be performed and no errors it is:
<rpc-reply message-id="101" xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0"> <ok/> </rpc-reply>
Now here comes the debate. How long is acceptable to wait before the configuration becomes
Some people say it should be available before ok is sent.
Others say it is ok to send ok reply and then make config available. Delay could be up to 5 seconds.
I know this is not specifically related to ConfD, I don’t even know how it is done for it, but what is the practice for you who work with NETCONF protocol?
Do you wait for notifications to verify if a configuration is available?
I am all ears!!
