Physical Parts of Control/Data/Management Plane.

reading about Control/Data/Management Planes , if I understand :

Control plane is where the Routing table is built.
Data Plane or also called Forwarding plane contains a copy of RIB
Management Plane , I am not sure what it is, probably it is just the interface of the router or the switch to which we connect to.

What I need to know, is the hardware that the above elements run on.

for instance does Control  plane encompasses CPU , Memory , or it is completely different Chip ? the same question applies for Data plane and Management Plane, on which hardware do they run on?

Thank you

In most routers, it all lives inside one large multi-function chip.

I know Control and Data Planes are Tables, they are the RIB and copy of the RIB
What about Management Plane?

Management plane is how you communicate with the device.  So when you SSH into a router, once inside the router, that traffic is now on the management plane.

ok..
so management plane traffic  is stored in form of  file in the chip ?
Control/Data planes are also stored in forms of files in the Chip, they are just called tables..

No...

These planes are not just a location.  They are also a path and a process.
