mPlane Software Development Kit for Python 3
This module contains the mPlane Software Development Kit.
The draft protocol specification is available in https://github.com/fp7mplane/protocol-ri/blob/master/doc/protocol-spec.md.
The mPlane Protocol provides control and data interchange for passive and active network measurement tasks. It is built around a simple workflow in which Capabilities are published by Components, which can accept Specifications for measurements based on these Capabilities, and provide Results, either inline or via an indirect export mechanism negotiated using the protocol.
Measurement statements are fundamentally based on schemas divided into Parameters, representing information required to run a measurement or query; and Result Columns, the information produced by the measurement or query. Measurement interoperability is provided at the element level; that is, measurements containing the same Parameters and Result Columns are considered to be of the same type and therefore comparable.
