Hello Sourabh,

actually weight is not a BGP attribute.


As noted by Zeeshan it is never exported in BGP updates so it cannot be classified in any BGP attribute category.


Local-preference is the BGP attribute that is more similar to weight and it is propagated within an AS.

if weight would be propagated within an AS it would be a duplicate of Local-Pref.



Hope to help

Giuseppe

Since Weight is local to a Router and is not advertised to any peer thus it does not fall in any of the categories
