Interface ConfigOperator

  • All Known Subinterfaces:
    DeviceConfigOperator, HostConfigOperator, PortConfigOperator

    public interface ConfigOperator
    An interface signifying a class that implements network configuration information from multiple sources. There is a natural ordering to the precedence of information, depending on its source:
    1. Intents (from applications), which override
    2. Configs (from the network configuration subsystem), which override
    3. Descriptions (from southbound)
    i.e., for a field representing the same attribute, the value from a Config entity will be used over that from the Description.
