Ido's response gave introductory commands which can also be found here:
    https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/vrf.txt

This should answer most questions about more advanced topics:

Lately, I am putting blogs on https://people.kernel.org/dsahern for
recurring questions.

network namespaces = device level separation and up
VRF = Layer 3 and up separation

Rumors are ugly. If in doubt, ask. LLA with VRF is a primary requirement
from the beginning.

With 5.3 and up, you can have IPv4 routes with IPv6 LLA gateways with
and without VRFs.
