eigrp metric

Answered Question

Hi All,

I happen to find that my eigrp metric seems not correct. The metric should not too large. even the connected interface, 192.168.1.0/24, FD is 2169856. and the subnet just connected to my normal serial port! and the bandwidth is 1544kbit and the delay is 20000 usec. so using metric=[(10000000/bandwidth)+(delay/10)], the metric should less 10000!

but the following is the output: can anybody tell me what's wrong?


sh ip eigrp topo

Unlike IGRP, EIGRP multiplies its metric by 256. If you divide that number by 256 then you are right, your metric is 8476.


Thanks.
