EIGRP with offsetlist and route-map

Dear All,

I like to change the EIGRP delay metric for a route (example:150.101.1.0)

I find two options

1. using route-map & set metric along with distribution-list inside router eigrp

2. offset-list

I see both are similar. Is it so,? Which one I have to use for this scenario.

Also In lab environment i noticed one behaviour of these commands.

when configuring "route-map & set metric used along with distribution-list "

I am able to manipulate only bandwidth parameter, But changing delay parameter is of no use

when configuring "offset-list"

By setting the offset value, delay parameter is changed accordingly.

Please expalain the actual usage of these two tricks to change the metric of the route

Thanks in advance

Re: EIGRP with offsetlist and route-map

Hello R.B. Kumar,

when you use a route-map with the distribute-list command you can set the metric with

set metric bw1 delay reliability load mtu

inside the route-map

this should become the new metric for the route so the effect is not additive as the offset-list but it should be a replacement

I mean something like the following:

route-map red_stat permit 10

match ip address 10

set metric 2048 2000 255 255 1500

!

route-map red_stat permit 20

match ip address 20

set metric 2048 2000 255 255 1500

!

route-map red_stat permit 30

match ip address 30

set metric 2048 2000 255 255 1500

!

Hope to help

Re: EIGRP with offsetlist and route-map

Hi Giuseppe,

Awesome answer (offset is additive & route-map with distribution-list is changes to new metric), which I have never seen so far. Thank you very much

Can you also explain me why I am not able to modify delay parameter using the commands as below?

route-map test permit 10

match ip address

set metric 1544 3500 255 1 1500 (I am changing delay parameter to 3500)

But where are as using offset-list I am able to do this. Is this the actual behavior or I am doing any mistake here

Hello R.B. Kumar,

may you post examples using

sh ip eigrp topology

of the two results you get ?

This can help the discussion

Hope to help

Giuseppe
