Operational Data Overview
You can use YANG data models to read operational state data from a device. The operational data allows you to determine the current state and behavior of a device, similar to IOS show commands.
You can perform NETCONF GET operations to retrieve read-only operational state data from a system. You must enable NETCONF, activate data parsers (where applicable), and then retrieve the data through an appropriate YANG model.
The How to Configure Operational Data section provides information on configuring operational data through a programmable interface and the CLI.
