Just a basic query, which i would like to get it clarified.
Q1. Why is EIGRP called Distance Vector?
My guess :- Though EIGRP does not use metric as the hop count, it uses delay (and BW)) and delay is the sum of the delay of all the hops to the destination. Each hop is a distance. Is that the reason its called Distance Vector.
Q2. EIGRP routing is called routing by rumour. It get routing updates from its neighbor and belives it that. Compared to this, its said that OSPF has a complete picture of the network and is like a road map. My question is even OSPF gets the information of all the network only from its neighbors? So why this kind of routing update is not called routing by rumour and how is this routing superior to EIGRP routing process.
Thanks in advance.
