Default Interface NVI0

So, i was just wonderign what this was, this is a cut from my run command. It's a 10 gig interface on my router, and not a local loopback.

Straight from Cisco...

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/...08041d91a.html

The NAT Virtual Interface (NVI) feature removes the requirement to configure an interface as either Network Address Translation (NAT) inside or NAT outside. An interface can be configured to use NAT or not use NAT.

NVI allows traffic between overlapped VPN routing/forwarding (VRFs) in the same Provider Edge (PE) router, and traffic from inside to inside between overlapping networks.

Thanks for the reply, i did try googling and cisco before but that didnt help (Probolly cuz i was dumb and i entered in the interface number as well).

I was origionally thinking it was a null interface to dispose packets, but it's never seen a packet in it's life
