set metric (EIGRP)

To set the metric value for Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) in a route map, use the set metric route-map configuration command. To return to the default metric value, use the no form of this command.

set metric bandwidth delay reliability loading mtu

no set metric bandwidth delay reliability loading mtu

Syntax Description

bandwidth

Metric value or EIGRP bandwidth of the route in kbps. The range is from 0 to 4294967295.

delay

Route delay (in tens of microseconds). It can be in the range from 0 to 4294967295.

reliability

Likelihood of successful packet transmission expressed as a number from 0 to 255. The value 255 means 100 percent reliability; 0 means no reliability.

loading

Effective bandwidth of the route expressed as a number from 0 to 255 (255 is 100 percent loading).

mtu

Minimum maximum transmission unit (MTU) size of the route, in bytes. It can be in the range from 0 to 4294967295.

Command Default

No metric will be set in the route map.

Command Modes

Route-map configuration (config-route-map)

Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.

12.2(33)XNE

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)XNE.

Usage Guidelines

We recommend you consult your Cisco technical support representative before changing the default value.

Use the route-map global configuration command, and the match and set route-map configuration commands, to define the conditions for redistributing routes from one routing protocol into another. Each route-map command has a list of match and set commands associated with it. The match commands specify the match criteria--the conditions under which redistribution is allowed for the current route-mapcommand. The set commands specify the set actions--the particular redistribution actions to perform if the criteria enforced by the match commands are met. The no route-map command deletes the route map.

The set route-map configuration commands specify the redistribution set actions to be performed when all of the match criteria for a router are met. When all match criteria are met, all set actions are performed.

Examples

The following example sets the bandwidth to 10,000, the delay to 10, the reliability to 255, the loading to 1, and the MTU to 1500:

Router(config-route-map)# set metric 10000 10 255 1 1500

set tag (IP)

To set a tag value for a route in a route map, use the set tag command in route-map configuration mode. To delete the entry, use the no form of this command.

set tag { tag-value | tag-value-dotted-decimal }

no set tag { tag-value | tag-value-dotted-decimal }

Syntax Description

tag-value

Route tag value in plain decimals. The range is from 0 to 4294967295.

tag-value-dotted-decimal

Route tag value in dotted decimals. The range is from 0.0.0.0 to 255.255.255.255.

Command Default

Routes are not tagged.

15.2(2)S

This command was modified. This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 15.2(2)S and the tag-value-dotted-decimal argument was added to support tag values in dotted-decimal format.

Cisco IOS XE Release 3.6S

This command was modified. The tag-value-dotted-decimal argument was added to support tag values in dotted-decimal format.

Usage Guidelines

Use the set tag command to set an administrative tag for a route within a route map. Route tags are 32-bit values attached to routes. You can set tag values as plain decimals or dotted decimals. Route tags are used by route maps to filter routes. The tag value has no impact on routing decisions. It is used to mark or flag routes to prevent routing loops when routes are redistributed between routing protocols.

Examples

The following example shows how to set the tag value of the destination routing protocol to 5:

Device(config)# route-map tag
Device(config-route-map)# set tag 5

The following example shows how to set the tag value in the dotted-decimal format:

Device(config)# route-map tag
Device(config-route-map)# set tag 10.10.10.10

Table 4 show eigrp address-family topology Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Codes

State of this topology table entry. Passive and Active refer to the EIGRP state with respect to the destination; Update, Query, and Reply refer to the type of packet that is being sent.

P - Passive

Indicates that no EIGRP computations are being performed for this destination.

A - Active

Indicates that EIGRP computations are being performed for this destination.

U - Update

Indicates that an update packet was sent to this destination.

Q - Query

Indicates that a query packet was sent to this destination.

R - Reply

Indicates that a reply packet was sent to this destination.

r - Reply status

The flag that is set after the software has sent a query and is waiting for a reply.

successors

Number of successors. This number corresponds to the number of next hops in the IP routing table. If “successors” is capitalized, the route or the next hop is in a transition state.

FD

Feasible distance. The feasible distance is the best metric to reach the destination or the best metric that was known when the route became active. This metric value is used in the feasibility condition check. If the reported distance of the device is less than the feasible distance, the feasibility condition is met and the route is considered a feasible successor. After the software determines that it has a feasible successor, the software need not send a query for that destination.

RIB

RIB metric.

replies

(Not shown in the output.) Number of replies that are still outstanding (have not been received) with respect to this destination. This information appears only when the destination is in active state.

state

(Not shown in the output) The exact EIGRP state of this destination. It can be the number 0, 1, 2, or 3. This information appears only when the destination is in active state.

via

IP address of the peer that advertised this destination. The first of these entries is the current successor. Subsequent entries in the list are feasible successors.

(46251776/46226176)

The first number is the EIGRP metric that represents the cost to the destination. The second number is the EIGRP metric that this peer advertised.

Ethernet0

The interface from which this information was learned.

Table 8 show ip eigrp accounting Field Descriptions

Field

Description

EIGRP IPv4 Accounting for AS...

Identifies the EIGRP instance along with the AS number, router ID, and table ID.

Total Prefix Count

Shows the aggregate sum of the prefixes in an EIGRP instance topology table. It includes prefixes learned from all neighbors and redistribution sources.

States: A-Adjacency, P-Pending, D-Down

A-Adjacency: Indicates a stable adjacency with the neighbor or a normal redistribution state.

P-Pending: Neighbor adjacency or redistribution is suspended or in a penalized state because the maximum prefix limit has been exceeded.

D-Down: Neighbor adjacency or redistribution is suspended permanently until a manually reset is performed with the clear ip eigrp neighbor command.

Address/Source

Shows either the neighbor IP address or the redistribution source.

Interface

Shows the interface on which neighbor information is received.

Prefix Count

Displays the total number of learned prefixes by source.

Note   

Routes can be learned for the same prefix from multiple sources, and the sum of all prefix counts in this column may be greater than the figure displayed in the “Prefix Count” field.

Restart Count

Number of times a route source has exceeded the maximum-prefix limit.

Restart Reset(s)

Displays the time, in seconds, that a route source is in a P (penalized) state. If the route source is in an A (stable or normal) state, the displayed time, in seconds, is the time period until penalization history is reset.

Usage Guidelines

The show ip eigrp neighbors command can be used to display information about EIGRP named and EIGRP autonomous-system configurations. Use the show ip eigrp neighbors command to display dynamic and static neighbor states. You can use this command for also debugging certain types of transport problems.

This command displays the same information as the show eigrp address-family neighbors command. Cisco recommends that you use the show eigrp address-family neighbors command.

The following sample output from the show ip eigrp topology prefix command displays Equal Cost Multipath (ECMP) mode information when the no ip next-hop-self command is configured without the no-ecmp-mode keyword in an EIGRP topology. The ECMP mode provides information about the path that is being advertised. If there is more than one successor, the top most path will be advertised as the default path over all interfaces, and “ECMP Mode: Advertise by default” will be displayed in the output. If any path other than the default path is advertised, “ECMP Mode: Advertise out <Interface name>” will be displayed.

The topology table displays entries of routes for a particular prefix. The routes are sorted based on metric, next-hop, and infosource. In a Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) scenario, routes with same metric and next-hop are sorted based on infosource. The top route in the ECMP is always advertised.

The table below describes the significant fields shown in the displays.

Table 12 show ip eigrp topology Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Codes

State of this topology table entry. Passive and Active refer to the EIGRP state with respect to the destination. Update, Query, and Reply refer to the type of packet that is being sent.

  • P - Passive—Indicates that no EIGRP computations are being performed for this route.
  • A - Active—Indicates that EIGRP computations are being performed for this route.
  • U - Update—Indicates that a pending update packet is waiting to be sent for this route.
  • Q - Query—Indicates that a pending query packet is waiting to be sent for this route.
  • R - Reply—Indicates that a pending reply packet is waiting to be sent for this route.
  • r - Reply status—Indicates that EIGRP has sent a query for the route and is waiting for a reply from the specified path.
  • s - sia status—Indicates that the EIGRP query packet is in stuck-in-active (SIA) status.

successors

Number of successors. This number corresponds to the number of next hops in the IP routing table. If “successors” is capitalized, then the route or the next hop is in a transition state.

serno

Serial number.

FD

Feasible distance. The feasible distance is the best metric to reach the destination or the best metric that was known when the route became active. This value is used in the feasibility condition check. If the reported distance of the device is less than the feasible distance, the feasibility condition is met and that route becomes a feasible successor. After the software determines that it has a feasible successor, the software need not send a query for that destination.

via

Next-hop address that advertises the passive route.

Table 14 show ip eigrp vrf accounting Field Descriptions

Field

Description

IP-EIGRP accounting for AS...

Identifies the EIGRP instance along with the AS number, Router ID and Table ID.

Total Prefix Count

Shows to the aggregate sum of the prefixes in an EIGRP instance topology table. It includes prefixes learnt from all neighbors or from redistribution.

States: A-Adjacency, P-Pending, D-Down

A-Adjacency: Indicates a stable adjacency with the neighbor or a normal redistribution state.

P-Pending: Neighbor adjacency or redistribution in suspended or in a penalized state because the maximum prefix limit has been exceeded.

D-Down: Neighbor adjacency or redistribution is suspended permanently until a manually reset is performed with the clear ip route command.

Address/Source

Shows the peer IP address of the redistribution source.

Prefix Count

Displays the total number of learned prefixes by source.

Note   

Routes can be learned for the same prefix from multiple sources, and the sum of all prefix counts in this column may be greater than the figure displayed in the “Prefix Count” field.

Restart Count

Number of times a route source has exceeded the maximum-prefix limit.

Restart/Reset(s)

Displays the time, in seconds, that a route source is in a P (penalized) state. If the route source is in an A (stable or normal) state, the displayed time, in seconds, is the time period until penalization history is reset.

Table 17 show ip eigrp vrf vrf-name topology Field Descriptions

Field

Description

Codes

State of this topology table entry. Passive and Active refer to the EIGRP state with respect to the destination; Update, Query, and Reply refer to the type of packet that is being sent.

P—Passive

No EIGRP computations are being performed for this destination.

A—Active

EIGRP computations are being performed for this destination.

U—Update

An update packet was sent to this destination.

Q—Query

A query packet was sent to this destination.

R—Reply

A reply packet was sent to this destination.

r—reply Status

The flag that is set after the software has sent a query and is waiting for a reply.

s—sia Status

The flag that is set if a route is in stuck-in-active state.

successors

Number of successors. This number corresponds to the number of next hops in the IP routing table. If “successors” is capitalized, then the route or the next hop is in a transition state.

FD

Feasible distance. The feasible distance is the best metric to reach the destination or the best metric that was known when the route became active. This value is used in the feasibility condition check. If the reported distance of the device is less than the feasible distance, the feasibility condition is met and that route becomes a feasible successor. After the software determines that it has a feasible successor, the software need not send a query for that destination.

replies

(Not shown in the output) Number of replies that are still outstanding (have not been received) with respect to this destination. This information appears only when the destination is in active state.

state

(Not shown in the output) The exact EIGRP state of this destination. It can be the number 0, 1, 2, or 3. This information appears only when the destination is in active state.

via

IP address of the peer that advertised this destination. The first of these entries is the current successor. Subsequent entries on the list are feasible successors.

(409600/128256)

The first number is the EIGRP metric that represents the cost to the destination. The second number is the EIGRP metric that this peer advertised.

Ethernet3/0

The interface from which this information was learned.

Usage Guidelines

The split-horizon rule prohibits a router from advertising a route through an interface that the router itself uses to reach the destination. The following are general rules for EIGRP split-horizon:

  • Split-horizon behavior is turned on by default.
  • When you change the EIGRP split-horizon setting on an interface, all adjacencies with EIGRP neighbors reachable over that interface are reset.
  • Split-horizon should typically be disabled only on non-broadcast multi-access interfaces.
  • The EIGRP split-horizon behavior is not controlled or influenced by the ip split-horizon command.

To configure split-horizon for an EIGRP address family, use the split-horizoncommand in address-family interface configuration mode.

To configure split-horizon for an EIGRP service family, use the split-horizoncommand in service-family interface configuration mode.

Examples

The following example disables EIGRP split-horizon for serial interface 3/0 in address-family 5400:

Router(config)# router eigrp virtual-name
Router(config-router)# address-family ipv4 autonomous-system 5400
Router(config-router-af)# af-interface serial3/0
Router(config-router-af-interface)# no split-horizon

The following example disables EIGRP split-horizon for serial interface 3/0 in service-family 5400:

Router(config)# router eigrp virtual-name
Router(config-router)# service-family ipv4 autonomous-system 5400
Router(config-router-sf)# sf-interface serial3/0
Router(config-router-sf-interface)# no split-horizon

Usage Guidelines

Use the stub command to configure a router as a stub where the router directs all IPv6 traffic to a distribution router.

The stub command can be modified with keywords, and more than one keyword can be used in the same syntax. These options can be used in any combination, except for the receive-only keyword. The receive-only keyword will restrict the router from sharing any of its routes with any other router in that EIGRP autonomous system, and the receive-only keyword will not permit any other option to be specified because it prevents any type of route from being sent. The connected, static, summary, and redistributed keywords can be used in any combination but cannot be used with the receive-only keyword.

If any of these four keywords is used with the stub command, only the route types specified by the particular keywords will be sent. Route types specified by the nonused keywords will not be sent.

The connected keyword permits the EIGRP stub routing feature to send connected routes. If the connected routes are not covered by a network statement, it may be necessary to redistribute connected routes with the redistribute connected command under the EIGRP process. This option is enabled by default.

The static keyword permits the EIGRP stub routing feature to send static routes. Without the configuration of this option, EIGRP will not send any static routes, including internal static routes that normally would be automatically redistributed. It will still be necessary to redistribute static routes with the redistribute staticcommand.

The summary keyword permits the EIGRP stub routing feature to send summary routes. Summary routes can be created manually with the ipv6 summary address eigrp command or automatically at a major network border router with the auto-summary command enabled. This option is enabled by default.

The redistributed keyword permits the EIGRP stub routing feature to send other routing protocols and autonomous systems. Without the configuration of this option, EIGRP will not advertise redistributed routes.


Note


Multiaccess interfaces such as ATM, Ethernet, Frame Relay, ISDN PRI, and X.25 are supported by the EIGRP stub routing feature only when all routers on that interface, except the hub, are configured as stub routers.


Examples

In the following example, the stub command is used to configure the router as a stub that advertises connected and summary routes:

ipv6 router eigrp 1
 network 3FEE:12E1:2AC1:EA32::/64
 stub

In the following example, the stub command is issued with the connected and static keywords to configure the router as a stub that advertises connected and static routes (sending summary routes will not be permitted):

ipv6 router eigrp 1
 network 3FEE:12E1:2AC1:EA32::/64
 stub connected static

In the following example, the stub command is issued with the receive-only keyword to configure the router as a receive-only neighbor (connected, summary, and static routes will not be sent):

ipv6 router eigrp 1
 network 3FEE:12E1:2AC1:EA32::/64 eigrp 
 stub receive-only

In the following example, the stub command is issued with the redistributed keyword to configure the router to advertise other protocols and autonomous systems:

ipv6 router eigrp 1
 network 3FEE:12E1:2AC1:EA32::/64 eigrp

Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5.

Usage Guidelines

The summary-address (EIGRP) command is used to configure interface-level address summarization. EIGRP summary routes are given an administrative distance value of 5. The administrative distance metric is used to advertise a summary address without installing it in the routing table.

By default, EIGRP summarizes subnet routes to the network level. The no auto-summary command can be entered to configure subnet-level summarization.

EIGRP Support for Leaking Routes

Configuring the leak-map keyword allows you to advertise a component route that would otherwise be suppressed by the manual summary. Any component subset of the summary routes or addresses can be leaked. A route map and access list must be defined to source the leaked route.

The following is default behavior if an incomplete configuration is entered:

  • If the leak-map keyword is configured to reference a nonexistent route map, the configuration of this keyword has no effect. The summary address is advertised, but all component routes are suppressed.
  • If the leak-map keyword is configured but the access list does not exist or the route map does not reference the access list, the summary address and all component routes are sent.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure an EIGRP summary address:

Router(config)# router eigrp virtual-name
Router(config-router)# address-family ipv4 autonomous-system 4453
Router(config-router-af)# af-interface ethernet0/0
Router(config-router-af-interface)# summary-address 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0 95

Usage Guidelines

When EIGRP creates a summary route, it includes a metric with the route in order to advertise it. EIGRP searches for components of the summary to be suppressed and represented by the summary. EIGRP finds the component with the best metric and copies the metric from the component into the summary. Components of the summary may change often, which means that every time the best component metric changes, the summary needs to be readvertised to all its peers. Even if the best component metric is not the one that changed, EIGRP still has to search every topology entry to make sure the summary is not affected. This can add a significant processing overhead.

Use the summary-metric command to mitigate this metric churn and processing overhead. Rather than searching for the best component metric, EIGRP uses the values configured using the summary-metric command.

The summary address is not advertised to the peer if the administrative distance is configured as 255.

The administrative distance or a set of values with or without the administrative distance is required after the subnet mask. That is, you can configure bandwidth, delay, reliability, load, and MTU with or without the administrative distance, or you can configure only the administrative distance.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure an EIGRP summary address and sets the bandwidth to 10000, the delay to 10, the reliability to 255, the load to 1, and the MTU to 1500 for the summary address 192.168.0.0/16:

Router(config)# router eigrp virtual-name
Router(config-router)# address-family ipv4 autonomous-system 4453
Router(config-router-af)# af-interface ethernet0/0
Router(config-router-af-interface)# summary-address 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0
Router(config-router-af-interface)# exit
Router(config-router-af)# topology base
Router(config-router-af-topology)# summary-metric 192.168.0.0/16 10000 10 255 1 1500

In the following example, only the administrative distance is specified for summary address 192.168.0.1/24:

router eigrp 1
 summary-metric 192.168.0.1/24 distance 20 
 ! <-- Specify admin distance only for 192.168.0.0/24

In the following example, for summary address 192.168.1.0/24 a metric is specified, but not the administrative distance:

 summary-metric 192.168.1.0/24 10000 10 255 1 1500 
 ! <-- Specify metric only for 192.168.1.0/24

In the following example, for summary address 192.168.2.0/24 both the metrics and distance are specified:

 summary-metric 192.168.2.0/24 1 1 1 1 1  distance 20 
 ! <-- metric and distance for 192.168.2.0/24

In the following example, for summary address 192.168.0.1/24 in VRF vrf1 a different distance is specified:

 address-family ipv4 vrf vrf1 autonomous-system 2
 summary-metric 192.168.0.1/24 distance 55 
 ! <-- different distance for 192.168.0.1/24 in vrf vrf1

Usage Guidelines

The graceful-restart purge-time timer sets the maximum period of time for which the NSF-aware router must hold known routes for an NSF-capable neighbor during a switchover operation or a well-known failure condition. The graceful-restart purge-time timer is configurable so that you can tune network performance and avoid undesired effects, such as “black holing” routes if the switchover operation takes too much time. When this timer expires, the NSF-aware router scans the topology table and discards any stale routes, allowing EIGRP peers to find alternate routes instead of waiting during a long switchover operation.


Note


The timers nsf signal command is supported only on platforms that support High Availability.


Examples

The following example shows how to set the graceful-restart purge-time timer to 60 seconds for an NSF-aware IPv4 address family:

Device(config)# router eigrp virtual-name
Device(config-router)# address-family ipv4 autonomous-system 1

The following configuration example sets the route-hold timer value for an NSF-aware router. In the example, the route-hold timer is set to 2 minutes:

Router(config-router)# timers nsf route-hold 120

Usage Guidelines

The timers nsf signal command is entered only on a nonstop forwarding (NSF)-capable router. The EIGRP process starts a signal timer when it is notified of a switchover event. Hello packets with the RS bit set are sent during this period.

The converge timer is used to wait for the last end-of-table (EOT) update if all startup updates have not been received within the signal timer period. If an EIGRP process discovers no neighbor, or if it has received all startup updates from its neighbor within the signal timer period, the converge timer will not be started.


Note


The timers nsf signal command is supported only on platforms that support High Availability.


Examples

The following example shows how to adjust the signal timer to 30 seconds on an NSF-capable router:

Device(config)# router eigrp virtual-name-1
Device(config-router)# address-family ipv4 autonomous-system 1 
Device(config-router-af)# timers nsf signal 30

The following example shows how to adjust the signal timer to 30 seconds for EIGRP IPv6 NSF:

12.2(33)XNE

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)XNE.

Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5.

Usage Guidelines

The topology command is used in a Multitopology Routing (MTR) configuration to enable an EIGRP process under the specified topology. The topology command is entered under address-family configuration mode. Command configurations are applied only to the topology instance. The topology must be defined globally with the global-address-family command in global address-family configuration mode before the topology can be configured under the EIGRP process.

The tid keyword associates an ID with the topology instance. Each topology must be configured with a unique topology ID. The topology ID is used to identify and group Network Layer Reachability Information (NLRI) for each topology in EIGRP updates.

The topology ID must be consistent across devices so that EIGRP can correctly associate topologies.

Examples

The following example configures EIGRP process 1 to route traffic for the 192.168.0.0/16 network under the VOICE topology instance:

Device(config)# router eigrp 1 
Device(config-router)# address-family ipv4 unicast autonomous-system 3
Device(config-router-af)# topology VOICE tid 100
Device(config-router-af-topology)# no auto-summary

Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5.

Usage Guidelines

Setting a variance value enables EIGRP to install multiple loop-free routes with unequal cost in a local routing table. A route learned through EIGRP must meet two criteria to be installed in the local routing table:

  • The route must be loop- free. This condition is satisfied when the reported distance is less than the total distance or when the route is a feasible successor.
  • The metric of the route must be lower than the metric of the best route (the successor) multiplied by the variance configured on the router.

Thus, if the variance is set to 1, only routes with the same metric as the successor are installed in the local routing table. If the variance is set to 2, any EIGRP-learned route with a metric less than 2 times the successor metric will be installed in the local routing table.


Note


EIGRP does not load-share between multiple routes; it only installs the routes in the local routing table. Then, the local routing table enables switching hardware or software to load-share between the multiple paths.


Examples

The following example sets a variance value of 4:

Router(config)# router eigrp 109
Router(config-router)# variance 4

The following example sets a variance value of 4 in address-family topology configuration mode:

Router(config)# router eigrp virtual-name
Router(config-router)# address-family ipv4 autonomous-system 4453
Router(config-router-af)# network 10.0.0.0
Router(config-router-af)# topology base
Router(config-router-af-topology)# variance 4

vnet

To override interface configurations on a per-virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) basis, use the vnet command in the appropriate configuration mode. To remove VRF-specific configurations, use the no form of this command.

vnet { global | name vrf-name }

no vnet { global | name vrf-name }

Syntax Description

global

Allows the parent interface and subinterfaces to have different configurations. This is helpful when you have untagged packets arriving on the parent interface; vnet global configurations are applied to such packets.

Note   

Every router has a predefined virtual Network (vNET) known as “vNET global,” which refers to the global routing context, corresponds to the default Routing Information Base (RIB), is the default routing table, and carries untagged traffic. By default, interfaces belong to vNET global.

name vrf-name

Specifies a VRF that is included in the list of VRFs assigned to the interface by the vnet trunk command.

Command Default

Only vNET global exists.

Command Modes

Interface configuration (config-if)

Virtual network interface configuration (config-if-vnet)

15.3(2)T

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 15.3(2)T.

Usage Guidelines

This command can be used in interface configuration mode to configure vNET commands on the interface only if the interface is configured as a trunk interface. Any commands entered after the vnet command will be disabled on any interface that does not have the vnet trunk command configured.

VRF subinterfaces inherit certain configurations from the parent interface. An example is the ip ospf cost command.

Use the vnet command if you want to configure a VRF-specific command that is different from a command configured on the parent interface. Use this command to enter virtual network interface mode and then configure commands that will apply to a specified VRF.

Examples

The following example using the vnet command shows how to define a VRF instance named vrf1 on Gigabit Ethernet interface 1/1/1. The system then enters virtual network interface mode and the user configures the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) value to 30 that overrides the value inherited by the VRFs on the trunk interface, which had an OSPF cost of 20.

Router(config)# interface gigabitethernet 1/1/1
Router(config-if) vnet trunk
Router(config-if) ip address 10.1.2.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if) ! Set OSPF cost for all vNETs on this interface to 20.
Router(config-if) ip ospf cost 20
Router(config-if) vnet name vrf1
Router(config-if) ! Set OSPF cost for vrf1 to 30.
Router(config-if-vnet) ip ospf cost 30
Router(config-if-vnet) exit-if-vnet

The following example using the vnet command shows how to define vrf1 on Gigabit Ethernet interface 1/1/1. The system then enters virtual network interface mode and the user configures the OSPF cost value to 40, which applies to vnet global only.

Router(config)# interface gigabitethernet1/1/1
Router(config-if) vnet trunk
Router(config-if) ip address 10.1.2.1 255.255.255.0
Router(config-if) vnet global
Router(config-if-vnet) ! Set OSPF cost for global to 40.
