    Re: EIGRP MTU value

    Hello Major,

    This is a common question about the the MTU K.

    K5 (MTU) is not used in the "EIGRP cost/metric calculation", but it is used as a tie-breaker.

    Here is a straight-forward explanation: EIGRP MTU Metric  - Ivan Pepelnjak

    "Every so often I get a question about the MTU metric in EIGRP and whether it’s used at all or not. It actually is: if your router would have to ignore some equal-cost paths to the same destination (the number of equal-cost paths exceeds the value of the maximum-paths router configuration parameter), it ignores those with the lowest MTU metric.....<more>"
