Re: Eigrp Link Cost

Hi Shams,

In EIGRP there is nothing like cost of the link but there is metric.

Now to calculate the metric for a particular destination there is a formula

10000000

(------------------ + total delay ) * 256

min bandwidth

Using this formular you can calculate the metric for a particular destination from 2 different links or paths and then compare which has lower metric.

Also you can check this link for more details

This link will give you a very good idea about metric calculation in EIGRP
