The variance command is a multiplier when the value supplied with the variance command is multiplied by the lowest-cost metric, it must exceed the higher-cost metric in order for the higher-cost route to be added.

In a simple its use in the case og IGRP & EIGRP to load-share between links of un= metrics.



Pls rate if it helps u!!!
