A rtr-set object defines a set of routers. Sets can be built with hierarchical names and can also include direct references to other sets. References can also be made indirectly by using the “mbrs-by-ref:” attribute. For more details, see the section 'Set Objects'. Description of Attributes Specific to the RTR-SET Object

  • “rtr-set:” – This attribute defines the name of the set which must start with ‘rtrs-‘. It can be a hierarchical name with components separated by a colon (‘:'). At least one component must be an rtr-set name. The others can be more set names or AS Numbers. All the set name components of a hierarchical name have to be rtr-set names. For more details, see the section 'Set Objects'.
  • “descr:” – A short description related to the object.
  • “members:” – These attributes list the direct members of the set. They can be inet-rtr names, or IPv4 addresses, or other rtr-set names.
  • “mp-members:” – This attribute extends the “members:” attribute to include IPv6 addresses.
  • “mbrs-by-ref:” – These attributes can be used in all set objects. They allow indirect population of a set. If this attribute is used, the set also includes objects of the corresponding type (inet-rtr or other rtr-set objects for rtr-set, for example) that are protected by one of these maintainers and whose "member-of:" attributes refer to the name of the set. If the value of a "mbrs-by-ref:" attribute is ‘ANY', any object of the corresponding type referring to the set is a member of the set. If there are no "mbrs-by-ref:" attributes, the set is defined explicitly by the "members:" attributes. For more details, see the section 'Set Objects'.
  • “mnt-lower:” – When creating hierarchical sets, more specific object creations can be authorised using the “mnt-lower:”, if present. Otherwise, it can be authorised using the “mnt-by:” mntner objects. For more details, see the section 'Set Objects'.
