VRRP runs on each VRRP router and manages the state of the router. A host can have multiple VRRP routers configured, where each VRRP router belongs to a different virtual router.
A VRRP router has the following attributes:
Router name – A system-wide unique identifier
Virtual Router ID (VRID) – A unique number used to identify a virtual router on a given network segment. VRIDs identify the virtual router within a LAN
Primary IP address – The source IP address of the VRRP advertisement
Virtual IP addresses (VRIP) – An IP address associated with a VRID from which other hosts can obtain network service. The VRIP is managed by the VRRP instances belonging to a VRID.
VRRP parameters – Includes priority, advertise interval, preempt mode, and accept mode
