Cisco’s EIGRP metric – fact and not so fact

As a quick reminder from my previous blog post, let’s take a look at the full Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) metric formula: The EIGRP fomula simplifies (using default k-values) to: 256(min bandwidth + cumulative delay) To determine min bandwidth and cumulative delay, use the following information: Delay is computed as the cumulative delay … Continue reading Cisco’s EIGRP metric – fact and not so fact

Cisco EIGRP metric calculation simplified– the eyes have it!

There are numerous sources online which discuss Cisco’s Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) metric formula and its computation. My goal today is to present the formula in a way that is more pleasing to the eye so it is easier to follow the values as they get crunched through it. The following diagram is … Continue reading Cisco EIGRP metric calculation simplified– the eyes have it!
