Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm trying to use OSRM on my own map data (in OSM format)

I'm wondering which of the ~66k OSM attributes are relevant for this, and which are ignored by OSRM.

Is there a reference someone can point me to?

OSRM will use the tags specified in the profile that you pass to osrm-extract. The size of the predefined profiles, like car.lua sort of limits the usefulness of this answer, but the most important keys for routing are highway=* and access=*. You can see that lots of other tags are also accounted for, but those are by far the most important ones.

And other tags listet at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OSM_tags_for_routing and https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Routing#Routing_considerations. However these lists are incomplete and partly outdated.
