Gerhard Münz, Albert Antony, Falko Dressler and Georg Carle, "Using Netconf for Configuring Monitoring Probes," Proceedings of 12th IEEE/IFIP Network Operations & Management Symposium (NOMS 2006), Poster Session, Vancouver, Canada, April 2006, pp. 1–4.


Netconf is a new protocol for configuration and management of network devices, based on a flexible XML-encoded message format. Netconf aims to overcome the shortcomings of SNMP and CLIs that are predominantly used for configuration tasks. We demonstrate that Netconf is highly suitable for the configuration of IPFIX/PSAMP monitoring probes, as required in order to dynamically and remotely adapt to the varying needs of applications that receive and process monitoring data. In this regard, we present an XML-based data model covering all common configurable parameters for flow metering and aggregation, packet sampling, and data export. Finally, we describe how we implemented the Netconf-based configuration approach based on Web Services and SOAP.
