	Title		: Multiple Virtual Router Partitioning Policy 
                          Information Base

This document defines a Policy Information Base (PIB) for  
partitioning a single switch into a set of virtual switches.  
([SPPI] describes a structure for specifying policy information  
that can then be transmitted to a network device for the purpose  
of configuring policy at that device.  The model underlying this  
structure is one of well defined policy rule classes and instances  
of these classes residing in a virtual information store called  
the Policy Information Base (PIB).)  The partitioning PIB defined  
here is largely based on the Base Switch Partitioning MIB (MSF  
00.069) [MSF-VSMIB].  However, unlike that MIB, this document does  
not provide a management interface for the switch as a whole but  
instead only specifies the ports and resources assigned to virtual  
switches.  The management interface(s) to discover switch  
resources as a whole are outside the scope of this document.
