Chapter 2. Advanced EIGRP Concepts, Data Structures, and Protocols

This chapter builds on EIGRP concepts and algorithms described in Chapter 1, "EIGRP Concepts and Technology." The following sections focus on protocols and data structures used by EIGRP:

  • "EIGRP Transport Mechanisms and Protocols" describes the reliable transport between EIGRP neighbors.

  • "EIGRP Neighbors" provide the details about the concept of EIGRP neighbors and adjacencies.

  • "EIGRP Topology Table" describes the details of how EIGRP stores routing information.

  • "Building Routing Tables from EIGRP Topology Tables" explains the process of building the main routing table from an EIGRP topology table.

Throughout this chapter, we'll use an approximate structure map of EIGRP detailing ...
