If we want less bits on the wire, then adding support for a binary 
encoding (e.g. CBOR) to the existing YANG management protocols seems 
like a better path forwards to me since that seems to have the widest 
benefit.  CBOR encoded YANG (if using numerical "SIDs" rather than 
strings for the field names, draft-ietf-core-yang-cbor) is a pretty 
tight encoding, and is designed for IOT and constrained devices.  A CBOR 
encoding probably won't be quite as compact as custom TLVs, but I doubt 
that it would be significantly bigger either, and it has quite a few 
other benefits (code reuse, can be generically decoded).

Thanks,
Rob

What I am arguing is that the fact that BMP was created 15 years ago doesn't necessarily mean we should create an analogous IMP for IS-IS given the current IETF OPS technologies and the fact that faster link speeds and Moore's law facilitate deployment of these new OPS technologies. Anyway, I looked at the agenda and I will definitely attend GROW on Wednesday afternoon for the discussion.

>              [Robin] In the draft we simply mention the difference between NMP and protocols you mentioned for the management plane. Though there is maybe some overlap between the two types of protocols, the protocols you mentioned is not enough for monitoring the control protocol. For example, would we like to use YANG and NETCONF, RESTCONF, or gNMI to export the packets of control protocols such as update message of BGP and/or ISIS PDU, etc. for the purpose of monitoring?

For example, for the method of listening passively, if there are multiple hops between the listener and the network devices, it has to set up a tunnel as the virtual link for direct connection. But the TCP-based monitoring protocol need not care about it.

We also applied for the presentation in the two WGs. We should have copied the notice to the related WGs of RTG area. So the LSR WG and RTGWG WG mailing list are added. More comments and suggestions are welcome.
