                draft-acee-rtgwg-yang-rib-extend-08.txt

Abstract

   The Routing Information Base (RIB) is a list of routes and their
   corresponding administrative data and operational state.

   RFC 8349 defines the basic building blocks for RIB, and this model
   augments it to support multiple next-hops (aka, paths) for each route
   as well as additional attributes.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a YANG, [RFC6020], data model which extends the
   generic data model for RIB by augmenting the ietf-routing model as
   defined in [RFC8349].

   RIB is a collection of best routes from all routing protocols.
   Within a protocol routes are selected based on the metrics in use by
   that protocol, and the protocol install its best routes to RIB.  RIB
   selects the best route by comparing the route preference (aka,
   administrative distance) of the associated protocol.

   The augmentations described herein extend the RIB to support multiple
   paths per route, route metrics, and administrative tags.

   The YANG modules in this document conform to the Network Management
   Datastore Architecture (NMDA) [RFC8342].
