This chapter covers the following subjects:
BGP Path Attributes and Best Path Algorithm: This section describes the BGP Path Attributes that have an impact on the BGP best path algorithm–the algorithm BGP uses to choose the best BGP route for each destination prefix.
Influencing an Enterprise’s Outbound Routes: This section shows how to use the BGP features that influence the BGP best path algorithm.
Influencing an Enterprise’s Inbound Routes with MED: This section shows how to use the MultiExit Discriminator BGP feature that influences the BGP best path algorithm for inbound routes.
IGPs choose the best route based on some very straightforward concepts. RIP uses the least number of router hops between a router and ...
