EIGRP Delay

Hi Guys,

I just passed my BSCI but have a question regarding the simulation. In sim I had to configure EIGRP delay with 10ms. Its basically a redistribution in isis

router eigrp 100

redistribute isis level-1 metric 256 10

What I'd like to know is do we just add 10 (which is delay) as mili second or we have to add leading zeros or IOS accepts delay in micro seconds.

Regards

Re: EIGRP Delay

Hi Abbas,

First Congrats for passing your exam :)

Now coming to your question

DELAY

ms = miliseconds

us = microseconds = 1/1000 miliseconds

Delay is set in in tens of microseconds. So to get 10ms delay you have to configure value as 1000.

Re: EIGRP Delay

Hi Abbas,

Thaught to post an example for you so you can verify on your router/layer 3 switch if you have one handy.

Check the status of layer 3 interface

Switch#sh int vlan 10

Vlan10 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is EtherSVI, address is 0018.734f.a8c4 (bia 0018.734f.a8c4)

Internet address is x.x.x.x

MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 1000 usec<<<<<<<<<-----Value is disaplyed in microseconds

Now 1000 microsecond means 1 ms

Let me change the value of delay to 10 ms going to interface level prompt

Switch(config)#int vlan 10

Switch(config-if)#delay 1000 <<<<-----

Switch(config-if)#^Z

Switch_9_43_0_13#sh int vlan 10

Vlan10 is up, line protocol is up

Hardware is EtherSVI, address is 0018.734f.a8c4 (bia 0018.734f.a8c4)

Internet address is x.x.x.x

MTU 1500 bytes, BW 1000000 Kbit, DLY 10000 usec<<<<<<<-----

Now see when I changed the value of delay at layer 3 interface to 1000 it results in 10000 microseconds at interface level which means 10 ms.

Hope I am able to explain.

Regards,

Ankur
