Hierarchy Level


(MX5, MX10, MX40, and MX80 routers, and routers that use MX Series MPC line cards only) Configure all interfaces that use the same filter list to use a common template. This feature can be used to save microkernel memory and DMEM memory.

If the same filter list cannot be used on all interfaces, consider merging the filters and using the from interface firewall filter term to group the per-interface terms to produce a new common filter list.


If you configure both fast-lookup-filter and interface-specific statements, filter list templates are also used.
