Hi,

Restconf is doing all of this. A typical sequence of events is as follow:

  1. Sent PUT via restconf in "Configuration"
  2. Parse data
  3. Change Software Abstraction Layer (internal representation of the network)
  4. Trigger a Configuration data change
  5. Southbound plugin detect Configuration data change
  6. Southbound plugin tries to push the configuration to the device, if successful, copy configuration onto operational tree, if not, keep retrying.
