ip ospf mpls traffic-eng link


Is there anybody knows how the maximum bandwidth for an MPLS TS link is calculated? Litterature seems to indicate that it corresponds to interface bandwidth command but I do not think that this is the case.

pauillac#show ip ospf mpls traffic-eng link

OSPF Router with ID ( (Process ID 100)

Area 0 has 2 MPLS TE links. Area instance is 6.

Links in hash bucket 8.

Link is associated with fragment 1. Link instance is 6

Link connected to Broadcast network

Link ID :

Interface Address :

Admin Metric te: 1 igp: 1

Maximum bandwidth : 12500000

Maximum reservable bandwidth : 64000

Number of Priority : 8

Priority 0 : 64000 Priority 1 : 64000

Priority 2 : 44250 Priority 3 : 44250

Priority 4 : 44250 Priority 5 : 44250

Priority 6 : 44250 Priority 7 : 44250

Affinity Bit : 0x0

The maximum bandwidth for a 100 Base T interface is 12500000 and 1250000 for a 10 Base T interface. In fact, it seems that the interface bandwidth is multiply by 125.
