Best path selection

What would be the best way for path selection when we have routers running BGP & with multiple paths to the destination?

Re: Best path selection

Hi,

The best way is to go the most optimal route, which if you are taking partial routes and default from each isp peer, is what should happen pretty much automatically.

What exactly are you trying to achieve?

Re: Best path selection

I have multiple routes to a destination.

Router 1 --44Mb --> destination C

ROuter 2 -- 5XE1 lines --> destination C.

Location A has router 1 & Location B has router 2. Both these locations are connecetd via 6 Mb MAN link connected to the core switches. Core switch at location A connect to router 1 & core switch at Location B connect to router2.

Location A : Router 2 runs BGP over WAN & EIGRP over LAN.

Location B : ROuter 1 runs EIGRP on WAN & LAN

Now, I would want the location B to connect to destination C over the 5XE1 links. This should be the primary path. Now when this link is down, it has to traverse to Location A & connect to destination C via the DS3 at location A

Location B : ROuter 1 runs EIGRP on WAN & LAN

Did you mix these up?
