gnmic (pronoun.: gee·en·em·eye·see) is a gNMI CLI client that provides full support for Capabilities, Get, Set and Subscribe RPCs with collector capabilities.
- Full support for gNMI RPCs
Every gNMI RPC has a corresponding command with all of the RPC options configurable by means of the local and global flags.
- Flexible collector deployment
gnmiccan be deployed as a gNMI collector that supports multiple output types (NATS, Kafka, Prometheus, InfluxDB,...).
The collector can be deployed either as a single instance, as part of a cluster, or used to form data pipelines.
- gNMI data manipulation
gnmiccollector supports data transformation capabilities that can be used to adapt the collected data to your specific use case.
- Dynamic targets loading
gnmicsupport target loading at runtime based on input from external systems.
- YANG-based path suggestions
Your CLI magically becomes a YANG browser when
gnmicis executed in prompt mode. In this mode the flags that take XPATH values will get auto-suggestions based on the provided YANG modules. In other words - voodoo magic
- Multiple configuration sources
gnmic supports flags, environment variables as well as file based configurations.
- Multi-target operations
Commands can operate on multiple gNMI targets for bulk configuration/retrieval/subscription.
- Multiple subscriptions
With file based configuration it is possible to define and configure multiple subscriptions which can be independently associated with gNMI targets.
- Inspect gNMI messages
textprotooutput format and the logging capabilities of
gnmicyou can see the actual gNMI messages being sent/received. Its like having a gNMI looking glass!
- Configurable TLS enforcement
gNMI client supports both TLS and non-TLS transports so you can start using it in a lab environment without having to care about the PKI.
- Dial-out telemetry
The dial-out telemetry server is provided for Nokia SR OS.
- Pre-built multi-platform binaries
Statically linked binaries made in our release pipeline are available for major operating systems and architectures. Making installation a breeze!
- Extensive and friendly documentation
You won't be in need to dive into the source code to understand how
gnimcworks, our documentation site has you covered.
