Re: Eigrp Updates and Queries

There's no "normal" for these types of numbers.

That said, it does look odd that you have almost as many queries as you have updates--it does seem like you have a lot of active states on this specific router. What I would do is take an occassional look at the EIGRP event log, and see what's there. If you see a single route going active quite a bit, then you might want to chase down why that route is active so often, and see what can be done to fix it. If you see a lot of routes going active, then passive, on a regular basis, I would chase down one route, and if nothing shows up there, try and find some common element for all the routes--a single link through which they all pass, or a single router, etc. Then see if you can figure out why that link or router might be bouncing a lot, or look for problems in that area.

The EIGRP event log is probably the most important piece of information you have for monitoring the health of your network on a regular basis....

HTH.
