This page describe how to execute <get> and <edit-config> operations about "target-output-power" XML node via Netconf. There are totally three ways to config power.


1. Environment Requirement

  • Docker container that runs a Netconf server. Follow the instructions posted How to build and run ODTN Emulators?
  • netconf-console tool that is a simulation tool for Netconf client.
  • "target-output-power" node defined in "openconfig-terminal-device.yang" as the operation target node.
  • Running ONOS instance that is able to configure power through two ways.

Assume that we have started an OpenConfig Cassini Emulator which runs a Netconf server in docker as follows:

CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                         COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                      NAMES
20c0298eb652        onosproject/oc-cassini:0.21   "sh /root/script/pus…"   2 hours ago         Up 2 hours          22/tcp, 8080/tcp, 0.0.0.0:11002->830/tcp   odtn-emulator_openconfig_cassini_1_1

2 Execute Operations

2.1 ONOS startup and node discovery

This section is the environment for section 2.3 and 2.4.

Firstly, an ONOS instance is started via command "bazel run onos-local -- clean". Secondly, the docker container connects to ONOS via command "onos-netcfg localhost device.json". The content of device.json is:

{
  "devices" : {
    "netconf:127.0.0.1:11002" : {
      "basic" : {
        "name":"cassini2",
        "driver":"cassini-ocnos"
      },
      "netconf" : {
        "ip" : "127.0.0.1",
        "port" : "11002",
        "username" : "root",
        "password" : "root",
        "idle-timeout" : "0"
      }
    }
  }
}

Then, we use "onos localhost" to log into ONOS CLI environment and see if the docker container is detected.

2.2 Config Power by using ONOS CLI Command "power-config"

An ONOS command is provided to configure the power of line-side ports.

In ONOS CLI environment, the description for command "power-config" is listed:

onf@root > help power-config                                                                                                                                         11:56:39
DESCRIPTION
        onos:power-config

    Get/Edit the target-output-power for specific optical-channel

SYNTAX
        onos:power-config [options] operation connection point [value]

ARGUMENTS
        operation
                Netconf Operation including get, edit-config, etc.
                (required)
        connection point
                {DeviceID}/{PortNumber}
                (required)
        value
                target-output-power value. Unit: dBm

OPTIONS
        --help
                Display this help message
        -j, --json
                Output JSON


This command also supports auto-completion function for each parameter.

Currently, only get and edit-config operations are supported:

onf@root > power-config                                                                                                                                              11:56:43
get             lock            unlock          get-config      copy-config     edit-config     kill-session    close-session   delete-config

2.2.1 Perform <get> Operation

Through power-config command, you can get the power value of any line-side port of any optical device, for example,

onf@root > power-config get netconf:127.0.0.1:11002/216                                                                                                              11:56:43
The target-output-power value in port 216 on device netconf:127.0.0.1:11002 is -2.0.


2.2.2 Perform <edit-config> Operation

Through power-config command, you can modify the power value of any line-side port of any optical device, for example,

onf@root > power-config edit-config netconf:127.0.0.1:11002/216 -4.0                                                                                                   12:04:11
onf@root > power-config get netconf:127.0.0.1:11002/216                                                                                                              12:06:01
The target-output-power value in port 216 on device netconf:127.0.0.1:11002 is -4.0.

2.3 Config Power on a single device by using Netconf tool like netconf-console

So we use the command listed below to send RPC request to the container:

netconf-console --host=127.0.0.1 --port=11003 -u admin -p admin --rpc={XML_FILE_NAME}

The root node of "openconfig-platform.yang" is "<components>" and its sublist "<component>" contains "<name>" node as its identity. Besides "openconfig-terminal-device.yang" adds node "<optical-channel>" into "<component>" node. "<target-power-config>" is defined as a child node of "<optical-channel>".

2.3.1 Perform <get> Operation

If you want to get the whole components, the content of get-components is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<get xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
  <filter xmlns:oc-platform="http://openconfig.net/yang/platform">
    <oc-platform:components/>
  </filter>
</get>


You can take a look at the output of get components here: out-get-components.xml

If you want to get only the "<optical-channel>" of "<component>", the content of get-components-op-channel is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<get xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
<filter>
    <components xmlns="http://openconfig.net/yang/platform">
      <component>
        <optical-channel xmlns="http://openconfig.net/yang/terminal-device" />
      </component>
    </components>
  </filter>
</get>

The output is out-get-components-op-channel:

  </data>
</rpc-reply>

If you want to get the "<config>" nodes only where the frequency is 194750000 and the line-port is oe1, the content of get-config-nodes is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<get xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
  <filter>
    <components xmlns="http://openconfig.net/yang/platform">
      <component>
        <optical-channel xmlns="http://openconfig.net/yang/terminal-device">
          <config>
            <line-port>oe1</line-port>
            <frequency>194750000</frequency>
          </config>
        </optical-channel>
      </component>
    </components>
  </filter>
</get>
</get>

The output is is out-get-config-nodes:

<nc:rpc-reply xmlns:nc="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0" message-id="urn:uuid:703f18cc-512f-411c-8b8d-f07a87b4797f">

          <config>
            <frequency>194750000</frequency>
            <target-output-power>-5.1</target-output-power>
            <line-port>oe1</line-port>
          </config>
        </optical-channel>
      </component>
    </components>
  </data>
</nc:rpc-reply>

2.3.2 Perform <edit-config> operation

If you want to change the target-output-power value as 0dBm  instead of the default -5.1 dBm  where "<name>" ID is "oe1/2", the content of file is set-target-output-power :

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<edit-config xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
  <target><running/></target>
  <config>
    <components xmlns="http://openconfig.net/yang/platform">
      <component>
        <name>oe1/2</name>
        <optical-channel xmlns="http://openconfig.net/yang/terminal-device">
          <config>
            <target-output-power>0</target-output-power>
          </config>
        </optical-channel>
      </component>
    </components>
  </config>
</edit-config>


The output is:

<rpc-reply xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0" xmlns:nc="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0" message-id="urn:uuid:3b4de76f-74f0-4f06-808d-64320a6c47ed">
  <ok/>
</rpc-reply>

Then we request the "<config>" nodes again to check this operation, where the frequency is 194750000 and the line-port is oe1 using  get-config-nodes:

As you the following output illustrates, the target-output-power is changed from -5.1 to 0.
