K values are K1=BW, K2=Ld, K3=Del, K4=Rel, K5=MTU. When granting a default-metric for redistributed protocols the order is K1=BW, K3=Del, K4=Rel, K2=Ld, K5=MTU. Why are the K-values not configured using the K-value numerical order?
It is not a one to one relationship of K value to metric parameter. In particular it is not true that K5=MTU. And K2 processes a combination of bandwidth and load.
Since there is no one to one relationship then there can be no K value numerical order. The metric parameters are given in an order which is specified by Cisco (and which is roughly the order of their impact on the calculation of the metric).
