OpenConfig is an informal working group of network operators developing vendor-neutral data models for network configuration and management. The goal is to optimize networks for automation by moving away from the CLI and toward programmatic configuration. OpenConfig data models provide compatibility in multi-vendor deployments, paving the way for network automation powered by telemetry.
Telemetry uses a push model to automatically stream real-time performance data from network devices. Remote management applications can choose statistics of interest and receive the data in a structured format. Remote procedure calls (gRPC) are used to provision sensors, subscribe to and receive telemetry data. Network operators can use this data, delivered at high frequency and at a fine level of granularity, to quickly locate and investigate issues as soon as they occur.
