I've got a request for the group for a feature I would find useful in
The current setup is based on the idea that RtConfig connects to a
single server which has multiple sources. I've got a situation where I
have a local database for the NZ Route Registry - NZRR (running on an
IRRd server) which I want to consult first and then connect to the APNIC
server to get APNIC and possibly other objects.
So I might call a suitably modified RtConfig like:
RtConfig -h whois.nzix.net:NZRR -h whois.apnic.net:APNIC,RADB .....
RtConfig -h whois.nzix.net,whois.apnic.net -s NZRR,APNIC,RADB .....
This is an extension of the mechanism that the IRR cache file allows but
is much more scalable and allows route objects.
This has been asked for before - see
I figured that while the covers are off this might be something that
could get included.
