Hi,Bgp deterministic-med

Hi,

Bgp deterministic-med command ensures the comparison of the MED variable when choosing routes advertised by different peers in the same autonomous system and bgp always-compare-med command ensures the comparison of the MED for paths from neighbors in different autonomous systems.

But there is a way and sequence of comparison depending if both are enabled or either one is enabled. Please follow the link below that will help you understanding the MED comparison.

If you have any BGP query you can refer to my ask the expert event link:
