OSPF metric is the cumulative cost as calculated on local node to destination so yes you see the total cost in the IP routing table just using show ip route a.b.c.d
Yes, an SVI L3 Vlan interface has an OSPF cost associated to it, with default settings that cost is 1. When changing the auto-reference bandwidth in OSPF we need to take care of the cost on SVIs that have associated a bandwdth that is not 1Gbps ( I think it is more 4 or 8 Gbps is my guess). You can use
ip ospf cost
to set the cost manually on SVI interfaces in interface configuration mode to reflect your choices of reference bandwidth.
O E2 can be load balanced over equal cost paths if a path is slower it will have a greater metric and it will not be used
Regarding the e2 routes, I thought that the cost doesnt increase across the links? So if there were say 2 hops from the router and 3 over another route, it will still load balance as the cost is the same, or am I wrong ?
routing to an O E2 route becomes routing to the ASBR node that injected the O E2 route in the OSPF domain, so even if the O E2 route metric does not increase over multiple router hops the internal path to the ASBR node does
The shortest internal path to ASBR node is used, equal cost multi path is possible,
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
