Unanswered Question

Is there a way to create a group of ip address to route rather than entering each one seperately? for instance we have an mpls router and a metro fiber connection (seperate isp's) I would like to route a group of servers out the metro for certain traffice through a tunnel with sister company. thanks

Which criteria classifies the addresses ? If you're doing for example PBR you can write the related ACL to summarize hosts and minimize config.

right now the only criteria is the amount of data passing from the servers, we would like to go through the faster connection. But like you said, Im trying to keep the config clean ....know a little about object grouping, but was thinking there was a network group or something that could be created and each host added to it, something like that

No, if you are manually routing an a per-host basis, the most you can do is summarizing addresses on the powers of 2, that reduces the config a little but complicates management a lot.

More easily you could classify the hosts based on your criteria in different vlan/subnets and vlan/subnet and route them accordingly.
