This document presents a base YANG Data model for the management of
Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) protocols that use
connectionless communications.  The data model is defined using the
YANG data modeling language, as specified in RFC 7950.  It provides a
technology-independent abstraction of key OAM constructs for OAM
protocols that use connectionless communication.  The base model
presented here can be extended to include technology-specific

There are two key benefits of this approach: First, it leads to
uniformity between OAM protocols.  Second, it supports both nested
OAM workflows (i.e., performing OAM functions at the same level or
different levels through a unified interface) as well as interactive
OAM workflows (i.e., performing OAM functions at the same level
through a unified interface).

This document is a product of the Layer Independent OAM Management in the Multi-Layer Environment Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
