Off-box monitoring

[Content needed.]

The results collected by a path monitor, along with the determined compliance states, are available via NETCONF, according to a YANG data model. The model is defined by vyatta-service-path-monitor-v1.

Also, the set-compliance-status YANG RPC is defined to allow an external controller to directly manipulate the policy state and thus influence the flow of application traffic. For a monitor and policy pair (or list of policies) the controller can force a compliant or non-compliant state, or revert back to the locally determined state. The RPC is defined by the vyatta-service-path-monitor-control-v1 YANG model.

The compliance state override RPC is configured by the following command:

$set service path-monitor monitor <name> compliance-status-override (enabled | disabled)

The default state of compliance-status-override is disabled.
