In this video, Russ goes through the different ways you can manipulate the cost of links for OSPF. Learn how to manually manipulate paths in your OSPF environment by adjusting metrics.
- [Instructor] Even though we spend time…configuring OSPF to automatically choose the best routes…to network destinations in our environment,…this doesn't mean that we don't sometimes want to have…manual control of which routes we choose in our environment.…So, in this lesson,…we are going to cover the manual manipulation of cost values…to specifically choose router interfaces for traffic.…So, within OSPF, we have two main ways of forcing OSPF…to use a path that we choose.…
The first is by altering the cost of an interface directly.…We would do this by using the interface command,…then the ip ospf cost command…to alter the cost used in the OSPF calculation.…Now, this overrides OSPF's own calculation…and replaces it with what we set.…This is used to make the cost better or worse,…whatever we choose, in order to use or not use an interface…to move traffic within our OSPF environment.…
The next option we have…is to change the underlying bandwidth itself.…This is used in the cost calculation,…so by changing the bandwidth,…
