Configures

The bandwidth value to be used in computing routing metrics

Default

Depends on the interface

Description

This command describes the bandwidth value to the routing protocols that use the bandwidth in computing routing metrics. It does not actually set the bit-rate on the interface itself. It does not affect the speed at which data is transmitted over the link, but does affect how the router selects routes and, therefore, how the link is used.

Example

A T1 connection would be:

bandwidth 1536

A 56K connection would be:

bandwidth 56
