ip bandwidth-percent eigrp

Hi,

I read that the ip bandwidth-percent eigrp [as] [percent] command should be issued on point-to-point interfaces to limit the amount of EIGRP traffic.

So the bandwidth command will only be used for route metric calculations?

How about the same command on NBMA networks?

Re: ip bandwidth-percent eigrp

Hello Wassim,

the ip bandwidth-percent eigrp command instructs EIGRP on how to send its traffic.

Without it EIGRP should use up to 50% of the bandwidth value.

The command is useful in NBMA environments where a low bandwidth value is provided in some scenarios to every subinterface. Actually the command accepts even a value greater then 100% for this reason.

On point-to-point links I don't see a real need for this.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
