Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) routers typically receive multiple paths to the same destination. The BGP best path algorithm decides which is the best path to install in the IP routing table and to use for forwarding traffic.

For a list of rules used to determine the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) best path algorithm, refer to BGP Best Path Selection Algorithm.
