Technical Summary

This document describes a YANG data model for Virtual Router Redundancy (VRRP), and 
both version 2 and 3 are covered. VRRP provides higher resiliency by specifying an election 
protocol that dynamically assigns responsibility for a virtual router to one of the VRRP routers 
on a LAN. The protocol has been implemented and deployed by most of network equipment 
vendors.  Providing a standard YANG model will facilitate the protocol configuration and status 
in a vendor independent way.
