Things that have to match between routers:
K1= Bandwidth => on
K2 = Load => off
K3 = Delay => on
K4/K5 = Reliablility => off
Types of Packets:
Hello => Unreliable / Multicast => Forms relationship
Update => Reliable / Multicast/Unicast => Sends updates
Acknowledgment => Unreliable / Unicast => Acknowledges the update, query, and reply messages.
Query => Reliable / Unicast/Multicast => Asks about routes
Reply => Reliable / Unicast => Response to a query
DUAL Algorithm Terms:
- determines the best loop-free path and backup paths
Successor => Neighboring router that is used for forwarding packets
Feasible Successor (FS) => Neighboring router that has a loop-free backup path to the same network as the Successor and satisfies the Feasibility Condition (FC)
Feasible Distance (FD) => The lowest calculated metric to reach the destination network. how far from you to get somewhere.
Reported Distance (RD) or Advertised Distance (AD) => The total metric to a destination network. how far from your neighbor.
Feasible Condition or Feasibility Condition (FC) => Condition is met when a neighbors Reported Distance (RD) to a network is less than the local routers feasible distance.
- To be considered a FS, the AD must be less than the FD of the successor*
If there is a FS that doesn’t make the cut, it will still be used – just not right away.
DV (Distance Vector) protocol loop prevention:
Maximum distance => Hop limits
Route poisoning => a method that prevents a certain network from sending data packets to a path destination that has already became invalid.
Triggered updates => Don’t have to wait to send an update
Split horizon => Cannot send messages on interface that received them.
Hold down timers => Have to wait a certain time before a route can come back up.
It builds these 3 tables in this order:
Neighbor table => show ip eigrp neighbors
Topology table => show ip eigrp topology
Routing table => show ip route
