In some circumstance, a server may contain many instances of a particular YANG list or leaf-list. Retrieval of the entire list or leaf-list at once can be extremely inefficient. Pagination mechanisms are needed to allow a client to iterate through a large list, in a manner that is most efficient for the application. This document Updates RFC 8040 to declare "list" and "leaf-list" as resource targets for the RESTCONF operations such as GET, POST operations.
