EIGRP – Best Path Selection

By default EIGRP uses bandwidth and delay of the line to determine the best path to a remote network. However, if desired, EIGRP can use a composite of four metrics: bandwidth, delay, reliability, and load. Maximum transmission unit (MTU) is … Continue reading

Load Balancing with EIGRP

RIP, RIPv2, IGRP, EIGRP and OSPF are all routing protocols that support equal cost load balancing but IGRP and EIGRP can also support unequal cost load balancing. However, unlike IGRP, EIGRP supports VLSM (Variable Length Subnet Masking). Below I use … Continue reading
