Hi There!

I'm currently working on writing some automation around the ASR9K platform
and I've been looking at both the netconf and xml interfaces. Anyone have
experience with either?

It looks like the XML interface is much more feature rich, supporting both
config and operational state objects where netconf is limited to config

Currently I'm leaning towards the xml interface, but netconf would come
with the appeal of using a standard and any libraries I write for it may be
usable with other platforms.

Thoughts? experiences? mistakes? wins?
