Title : Multiple Virtual Router Partitioning Policy
Author(s) : T. Anderson et al.
Filename : draft-anderson-mvr-pib-00.txt

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.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
