Performing the get/get-bulk operation

The get operation is used to retrieve device configuration and state information that match the conditions.
In some cases, this operation leads to inefficiency.
The get-bulk operation is used to retrieve a number of data entries starting from the data entry next to the
one with the specified index. One data entry contains a device configuration entry and a state
information entry. The data entry quantity is defined by the count attribute, and the index is specified by
the index attribute. The returned output does not include the index information. If you do not specify the
index attribute, the index value starts with 1 by default.
The get-bulk operation retrieves all the rest data entries starting from the data entry next to the one with
the specified index if either of the following conditions exists:
You do not specify the count attribute.
The number of matched data entries is less than the value of the count attribute.
# Copy the following text to the client to perform the get operation:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rpc message-id="100" xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0">
<getoperation>
<filter>
<top xmlns=" http://www.hp.com/netconf/data:1.0">
</top>
</filter>
</getoperation>
</rpc>
Where, the <getoperation> parameter can be <get> or <get-bulk>. The <filter> element is used to filter
data, and it can contain module name, submodule name, table name, and column name.
If the module name and the submodule name are not provided, the operation retrieves the data for
all modules and submodules. If a module name or a submodule name is provided, the operation
retrieves the data for the specified module or submodule.
If the table name is not provided, the operation retrieves the data for all tables. If a table name is
provided, the operation retrieves the data for the specified table.
If only the index column is provided, the operation retrieves the data for all columns. If the index
column and other columns are provided, the operation retrieves the data for the index column and
the specified columns.
The <get> and <get-bulk> messages are similar. A <get-bulk> message carries the count and index
attributes. The following is a <get-bulk> message example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rpc message-id ="101" xmlns="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:netconf:base:1.0"
xmlns:xc="http://www.hp.com/netconf/base:1.0">
<get-bulk>
<filter type="subtree">
<top xmlns="http://www.hp.com/netconf/data:1.0"
xmlns:base="http://www.hp.com/netconf/base:1.0">
Specify the module, submodule, table name, and column name
