While I have found some information on a project called linux-mpls I
am having a hard time finding any solid VRF framework for Linux. I
have a monitoring system that needs check devices that sit in
overlapping private ip space, and I was wondering if there is anyway I
could use some kind or VRF type solution that would allow me to label
the "site" the traffic is intended for. The upstream router supports
VRF/MPLS, but I need to know how I can get the server to label the
traffic. I would appreciate any input.
In linux, you can manage the different routing tables.
You can do this with the iptables + iproute2 series of commands. The
tables 254/255 are the main and local tables.
You shouldn't have too much trouble finding information via google on
how to manage your needs.
I guess VRF more close to Linux containers.
