Hello Ben,

The <monitor-requests> object maps the name of the table to be monitored

to an array of <monitor-request> objects. Each <monitor-request> is an

object with the following members:

       "columns": [<column>*]            optional

       "select": <monitor-select>        optional



As the <monitor-requests> maps the table name to be monitored to an array
of <monitor-request>, my interpretation of it is as "Table Name <--> Array
of <monitor-request>"

I am giving an example message is given below.

{
  "id": "c5c09c07-11c1-449b-8f04-016fefe15844",
  "method": "monitor",
  "params": [
    "hardware_vtep",
    "91c9eed4-00bb-48e3-b2d9-51e0364bbdc2",
    {
      "Physical_Locator": [
        {
          "columns": [
            "dst_ip",
            "encapsulation_type",
            "_uuid"
          ],
          "select": {
            "initial": true,
            "insert": true,
            "delete": true,
            "modify": true
          }
        },
        {
          "columns": [
            "_uuid",
            "locators"
          ],
          "select": {
            "initial": true,
            "insert": true,
            "delete": true,
            "modify": true
          }
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}
