Technical Summary This document describes the MRT format for routing information export. This format was developed in concert with the Multi-threaded Routing Toolkit (MRT) from whence the format takes it name. The format can be used to export routing protocol messages, state changes, and routing information base contents. Working Group Summary The working group spent a significant amount of time looking at and reviewing this document. Updates where made based on working group review, and requests for clarification. There was consensus from the working group at last call. Document Quality Several existing implements exist for this document. A new implementation was written during the review process of the draft. Specificly Geoff Huston, attempted to write code based on the draft, and drove some clarifications, and issues based on his work. The industry currently uses the protocol for export of the routing information. In addition different users are using the exported data as input for specific applications. Personnel The document has been reviewed by Peter Schoenmaker (WG co-chair.) Ron Bonica and Dan Romascanu are the ops area directors.
