Route Table

Generic message maintains a route table per router instance. The route table contains three types of routes, static routes from configuration, dynamic routes auto generated from peer names per connection and dynamic routes added by an iRule.
The route table will use the source and destination address of a message to determine the best matching route to use for forwarding the message. The source and destination attributes of the route will be matched against the source and destination addresses of the route to generate a score. The highest scoring route is used for forwarding the message.
