OSPF study references

 

Why don't we gather each candidate's unique study reference,

and share them among us?

 

More efficient than self study.

  • Hi Sakamoto,

    What type of reference you are talking about, about CCIE exam or else? Please make it clear.

    About CCIE exam.

     

    In OSPF field, we gather OSPF.

     

    In BGP, BGP.

  • Yes, we can have discussion on the same without violating NDA because we can't disclose anything that we have seen in the real lab exam [:)]

    OSPF Bandwidth Calculator

     

    No ospf calculators are allowed in the lab. We must memorize the formula, because  looking it up in the lab will take up time.  It is much easier than EIGRP.

     

       
        referenceBW/BW = cost


    *default referenceBW = 100,000,000 or 100Mb

  • It is much easier than EIGRP

    In fact you don't need to memorise the EIGRP formula!  show ip eigrp topology x.x.x.x will give you all the information that you need.

    Hi welshy,

    The K-values are there, which is nice to know.   But if we need to quickly calculate for variable paths, shouldn't we use the formula?

    I remember there being a really good task in the EIGRP section (vol-I).   Since I am starting to work on speed, I found that it is a bit slow to just keep changing metrics to get the correct required ratio.

    Please let me know if you know of a good routine to calculate ratios for variable paths (EIGRP).  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

     

    Default EIGRP Metric =     256*(Bandwidth + totalDelay)

    *bandwidth = 10^7/minBW

     

    Long Version:

    [ K1 * bandwidth + (K2 * bandwidth)/256 - load) + K3 * delay] * [ K5/(reliability + K4)]

    You can use the formula if you want to waste a lot of time!

     

    Rack1R3#show ip eigrp topology 10.1.1.1/32
    IP-EIGRP (AS 123): Topology entry for 10.1.1.1/32
      State is Passive, Query origin flag is 1, 1 Successor(s), FD is 25856
      Routing Descriptor Blocks:
      10.1.35.5, from Redistributed, Send flag is 0x0
          Composite metric is (25856/0), Route is External
          Vector metric:
            Minimum bandwidth is 100000 Kbit
            Total delay is 10 microseconds
            Reliability is 255/255
            Load is 1/255
            Minimum MTU is 1500

            Hop count is 0
          External data:
            Originating router is 10.1.1.3 (this system)
            AS number of route is 1
            External protocol is OSPF, external metric is 20
            Administrator tag is 0 (0x00000000)
      192.168.123.1 (FastEthernet0/0), from 192.168.123.1, Send flag is 0x0
          Composite metric is (2560002816/2560000256), Route is External
          Vector metric:
            Minimum bandwidth is 1 Kbit
            Total delay is 110 microseconds
            Reliability is 1/255

            Load is 1/255
            Minimum MTU is 1
            Hop count is 1
          External data:
            Originating router is 10.1.1.1
            AS number of route is 0
            External protocol is Connected, external metric is 0
            Administrator tag is 0 (0x00000000)

    The above command also tells what values are being used for to create the EIGRP metric for each route within the EIGRP RIB.  Do you agree?

    This means that we can work out what manipulations we need to do by applying the relevant offset list.

    If we are not allowed to apply offset lists as the final solution - then the above show command will show what value of delay to apply once your offset has been applied.  Simply take the difference in delays and divided by 10 and apply delay y under the inferface and remove the offset list and then wait for EIGRP converge.

    If you attend Brian's R&S BC this is his recommendation - in my view it makes life easier as the router is doing the hard work for you!

    To test have router learn a prefix via two different paths - then apply an offset list on one interface - and look how the delay changes in the topology table for the specific prefix.

    What I'm trying to say is that you can remember more important facts and forget things like the EIGRP formula - "why keep router and bark yourself" - http://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/Why+keep+a+dog+and+bark+yourself?

    Nice.   That would be much faster.

    Use the offset-list as a shortcut to desired end-result. Note/apply the changes in delay.  Then remove offset-list.

    Thanks.

  • With offset you can be more specific by matching exact routes but when the task is asking to do per packet load sharing variance i believe you should know the formula to find the right delay value to apply to the offset-list..
