There is a need for standard mechanisms to identify the YANG modules and submodules that are in use by a server that implements YANG data models. If a large number of YANG modules are utilized by the server, then the YANG library contents needed can be relatively large. This information changes very infrequently, so it is important that clients be able to cache the YANG library contents and easily identify whether their cache is out of date.
