Re: modify reference bandwidth in ospf

Hi,

How you calculated 20000 ( reference Bandw/interface bandw). I want to know what is the base for selecting 20000. Please help

Re: modify reference bandwidth in ospf

It is n, where the cost = n / bandwidth.

=> n = cost * bandwidth

Not sure the question.

You do not know the command

auto-cost reference-bandwidth 20000

or is there another question?

How 2000 is selected ? This is the only confustion..

Re: modify reference bandwidth in ospf

The reference bandwidth is in meg

So to get the cost you just divide this number by the bandwidth. Or in your case I just multiplied the cost by the bandwidth.

You had all the calculations correct so figured you knew the 20000 number and had used it for your table.

Edit.... kevin and me agree I guess we jsut post at the same time...

Hi,

I have only one question, how you have calculated 20000 from my requirement. Please help.

Re: modify reference bandwidth in ospf

You said 10000m would be a cost of 2

So cost = reference bandwidth / interface bandwidth

give 2 = reference bandwidth / 10000

you get reference bandwidth = 2*10000 = 20000
