Configures

Properties of routes matching a route map

Default

The default metric for the routing protocol

Description

This command sets the metric value for a matching route. The first form of the command (with a single metric-value parameter) is used for most routing protocols; the metric value must be appropriate for the protocol’s routing metric. For IGRP and EIGRP, you must use the second form of the command with five parameters:

bandwidth

The bandwidth of the route in kilobits per second. The value can be from 0 to 4,294,967,295.

delay

The route delay in tens of microseconds. The value can be from 0 to 4,294,967,295.

reliability

A value from 0 to 255. 0 indicates total unreliability; 255 indicates complete reliability.

loading

A value from 0 to 255. 0 means no load; 255 means 100% loaded.

mtu

The smallest MTU for any link in the route, in bytes. The value can be from 0 to 4,294,967,295.
