OSPF: Metric (Cost) Calculation for both Intra-Area and Inter-Area explained, and Metric fine tuning for path selection!

To calculate the best path to a route, first the router builds an LSDB that is then run against the SPF Algorithm, which then comes up with its best paths to subnets. Ultimately what makes it into the IP Route Table is decided by CEF, which views all protocols different tables to decide the best … Continue reading OSPF: Metric (Cost) Calculation for both Intra-Area and Inter-Area explained, and Metric fine tuning for path selection!
