5000 RTO EIGRP

Hi everybody,

I have a issue in my network, i have 2 data connections with 2 different ISP (Principal & Backup connection).

But with ISP "X" the RTO are stable (RTO 240), but with the ISP "Y" the RTO is in 5000 and the connection always are flapping

What can i say to my "Y" ISP?

Thanks!!

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

Hi

what about the other neighbors' values? Try posting the output of

show ip eigrp neighbors

Those timeouts might be due to a number of reasons...

Hi Francesco,

This is it:

XXXX#sh ip eigrp neighbors

IP-EIGRP neighbors for process 18

H   Address                 Interface       Hold       Uptime     SRTT   RTO    Q      Seq

                                                     (sec)                       (ms)             Cnt    Num

0   30.30.30.2              Fa0/0          14        03:47:51     137    5000    0     122758

Thanks!

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

You might have occasionally (actually not in you output) high SRTT values, which

lead to timeouts and consequently highs RTO values.

You should gather some stats about rtt, jitter and packet loss values: for instance

you could try running an extended ping to 30.30.30.2 with your router-id as the source

of icmp packets

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

pleasepost more info:

show ip eigrp interface

show ip eigrp nei

show interface point_to_Y

and post the RTT as well, the full output. 5000 is not a casual value.

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

Sure... there's a lot of reason why that would do so, high rtts, jitter over wan, maybe even

a unidirectional wan link...

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

You did not get what i meant.

No matters

5000 RTO EIGRP

Hi Kenneth,

neighbors flapping is due to, missed hello-packet from remote-eigrp peer.

what is the bandwidth set on the interface, on one which neighbors is flapping?

Look forward to hear from you.

thanks

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

Hi

rizwanr74

The interface bandwidth set 100mbps and it is 192.168.1.2 that is constantly flapping....

thanks

5000 RTO EIGRP

Hello,

what is actually flapping - interface or EIGRP? can we have a 'sh logg' please?

EIGRP uses multicast for hello transmission, right? hence verifying unicast might not be the way forward. Do you have any issues with multicast? can you ping 224.0.0.10 off that interface?

5000 RTO EIGRP

the interface speed should be 100 Mbps ... no 10..

check again

Re: 5000 RTO EIGRP

Smooth Round Trip Time (SRTT) - the average time in milliseconds between the transmission of a packet to a neighbour and the receipt of an acknowledgement.

Retransmission Timeout (RTO) - if a multicast has failed, then a unicast is sent to that particular router, the RTO is the time in milliseconds that the router waits for an acknowledgement of that unicast.

I talk to with "Y" ISP and they said that problem is that between these two points in the ring of them, is a very long distance, they will change the route of the fiber.

Thank you very much for your help.
