Examine the sample output of the show ip eigrp topology command.
The network 126.96.36.199 is one of the advertised networks in the routing table. What does the value 128256 represent?
- The advertised distance
- The feasible distance
- The administrative distance
- The hop count
The number 128256 after the advertisement for network 188.8.131.52 represents the advertised distance. The advertised distance is the metric that the neighboring router advertised to the local router.
The feasible distance is the metric that the local router would advertise to the next router. Feasible distance is represented by the number preceding the advertised distance number in the output.
The administrative distance is a number that represents the trustworthiness of a routing protocol. It allows a router to decide which routing protocol’s route to use in the event that more than one protocol advertises a route to the same network. The administrative distance is not shown in the output of the show ip eigrp topology command.
Hop count is a simple metric that RIP uses to compare multiple routes to the same network.
