More along the lines of an SNMP table or something like that maybe?

The routing table contains routing instructions for IP packets - on a
PC this usually consists of the local subnet and a default gateway.
This information is usually received via DHCP (Ethernet) or IPCP (PPP
Connections).

On routers or firewalls, things can get more complicated - there are
even protocols for automatic distribution of routing table entries
(BGP, OSPF, RIP).
