Flashcards in EIGRP Routing Protocol Q/A's Deck (14)
What does EIGRP stand for?
What type of routing protocol is EIGRP?
Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol
Advance Distance Vector Routing Protocol
What multicast address does EIGRP use to send hello messages?
What is EIGRP default routing behavior?
equal cost load balancing up to 4 paths
Is EIGRP capable of performing unequal cost load balancing? Yes/No
What does EIGRP use in order to peer with other routers?
Autonomous System Number (AS)
What type of ID does EIGRP use to identify itself to other routers?
Router ID (RID)
What metric value does EIGRP uses to determine a successor router, is it the highest or lowest metric?
When the successor router is down and there is not a feasible successor, what happens next?
EIGRP queries other peers routers until a feasible successor is selected
When the successor router goes down and a backup feasible successor "does" exist what happens?
immediately fails over without sending a query to the other routers
The feasible successor is determined when reported distance is higher or lower than feasible distance of current successor route?
What four metrics in EIGRP are used to calculate the successor and feasible successor?
What two metrics in EIGRP are used by default to calculate the successor and feasible successor?
Bandwidth and Delay
What two metrics are not recommended to use in the metric calculations?
