Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) would appear to be a perfect companion for a router device, considering its benefits

  • higher priority ip rules (Policy Based Routing, PBR)
  • iproute2 supports the vrf
  • unix socket routing
  • impacts only Layer 3 and above so L2 tools (e.g., LLDP) are not affected
  • VRF devices allow VRFs to be nested within namespaces

Unfortunately, support for VRF is currently absent from the OpenWRT repo in all version.
