To control load balancing in an Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP)-based network, use the variance command in router configuration mode. To reset the variance to the default value, use the no form of this command.
Metric value used for load balancing. It can be a value from 1 to 128. The default is 1, which means equal-cost load balancing.
1 (equal-cost load balancing)
This command was introduced.
Setting a variance value lets the Cisco IOS software determine the feasibility of a potential route. A route is feasible if the next router in the path is closer to the destination than the current router and if the metric for the entire path is within the variance. Only paths that are feasible can be used for load balancing and included in the routing table.
If the following two conditions are met, the route is deemed feasible and can be added to the routing table:
•The local best metric must be greater than the metric learned from the next router.
•The multiplier times the local best metric for the destination must be greater than or equal to the metric through the next router.
Not true. The topology table contains more than successors and feasible successors. It contains all paths that have been received and not removed by the router sending it.
In answer to the original question, hop count is not a factor until it reaches the max value, which defaults to 100 hops. In order to know why a route doesn't show up, you need to supply the total topology in play and the output of "show ip eigrp topo " for the prefix in question from all routers in the path.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
