This is a Junos XML management protocol operation. It is supported in Junos XML protocol sessions, and it is supported as a Juniper Networks proprietary extension in NETCONF sessions on devices running Junos OS that identify the URI http://xml.juniper.net/netconf/junos/1.0 in the capabilities exchange.
Direct the NETCONF or Junos XML protocol server
to stop processing the request that is currently outstanding. The
server responds by returning the
<abort-acknowledgment/> tag, but might already have sent tagged data in response to the
request. The client application must discard those tag elements.
