Hi Aaron, interesting     …making routers do what you intend…hmmm… Sounds like SDN J   …how does what you are doing differ from the intent-based-controller driven sdn concepts that I hear so much about these days.


BTW, I did the survey.

Subject: Study on configuration change practices


We are a team of networking researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Colgate University investigating methods for automatically synthesizing router configurations from high-level requirements (or intents). To guide our research, we seek to better understand the configuration change practices used in production networks.

We would appreciate if you could take 3 minutes to complete our brief, anonymous survey:
