Vyatta documentation

Learn how to install, configure, and operate the Vyatta Network Operating System (Vyatta NOS) and Orchestrator, which help drive our virtual networking and physical platforms portfolio.


An example of how to use custom RPCs defined in the Vyatta NOS YANG modules. These typically execute a procedure on Vyatta NOS, with optional return of output.

You can use these in exactly the same way as in standard NETCONF operations like get and edit-config, for example.

Note: These custom RPCs are at the same level in a NETCONF message as get, edit-config and similar RPCs. So, you must enclose them within the generic NETCONF <rpc> tag in the same way.
In this example we use the <ping> RPC.
Use the <ping> RPC.
<rpc xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0" message-id="1">
  <ping xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-op:1">
A typical reply:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rpc-reply xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0" message-id="1">
  <tx-packet-count xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-op:1">4</tx-packet-count>
  <min-delay xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-op:1">22</min-delay>
  <max-delay xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-op:1">24</max-delay>
  <rx-packet-count xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-op:1">4</rx-packet-count>
  <average-delay xmlns="urn:vyatta.com:mgmt:vyatta-op:1">23</average-delay>
