                   Filter-Based RIB Information Model
                  draft-kini-i2rs-fb-rib-info-model-01

Abstract

   This document defines an information model and a data model for the
   I2RS Filter-based Routing Information Base (RIB) Yang model.  A
   routing system uses the Filter-based RIBto program FIB entries that
   process incoming packets by matching on multiple fields within the
   packet and then performing a specified action on it.  The FB-RIB can
   also specify an action to forward the packet according to the FIB
   entries programmed using the RIBs of its routing instance.

1.  Introduction

   The Interface to the Routing System (I2RS)
   [I-D.ietf-i2rs-architecture] architecture provides dynamic read and
   write access to the information and state within the routing
   elements.  The I2RS client interacts with the I2RS agent in one or
   more network routing systems.

   This document provides a yang module for the I2RS filter Based
   Routing Information Base (FB-RIB) and describes the I2RS interaction
   with routing filters within a routing element.

   Filter-based routing is a technique used to make packet forwarding
   decisions based on a filter that is matched to the incoming packets
   and the specified action.  It should be noted that that this is
