    Understanding Virtual Router Routing Instances

    Virtual router routing instances allow administrators to divide a QFX Series switch into multiple independent virtual routers, each with its own routing table. Virtual router routing instances enable you to isolate traffic without using multiple devices to segment your network. You can create routing instances for unicast routing protocols and PIM sparse mode.

    Each virtual router routing instance consists of sets of the following:

    • Routing tables
    • Interfaces that belong to these routing tables
    • Routing protocol configurations
    • Routing option configurations

    You can use virtual router routing instances to isolate customer traffic on a network and to bind customer-specific routing instances to customer-owned interfaces. Each interface can belong only to one routing instance.
