import path selection all

Hi All,

I hope someone will clarify my confusion.

(config-router-af)#import path selection ?

  all         Import all available paths

  bestpath    Import the best available path.

  multipaths  Import all multipaths.

What does multipaths mean here.

Moreover with below command

import path selection all

import path limit 6

maximum-paths 2

Does it mean 6 paths will be in vrf routing table and 2 path will be in BGP routing table. Is this command look meaningful since if there are 2 paths available in BGP how come it import 6 routes in vrf.

Regards

Mahesh

Hi Mahesh,

Multipaths are load sharing routes in RIB. "maximum-paths 2" said you can have 2 routes using best path algorithm e.g. when you have multihoming. When you are importing you can import only bestpaths(without load sharing) or multipaths (load sharing paths). The import path limit is set to the number you allow to import from exporting net.

Please take a look at this document, may it is described better:
