Adding Metric and Metric Type for Route Maps


Route maps are the only way to associate a redistribute metric and metric-type for OSPFv3 and the metrics are not configurable using the current OSPF commands. Route maps are another method to configure metric and metric-type on routers. Configuration of metrics and metric-type for OSPFv3 requires route maps.


CLI (network-admin@Leaf1) > vrouter-route-map-add


metric none

Specify a metric for the route map.

metric-type none|1|2

Specify the metric type.


The new parameters also apply to the vrouter-route-map-modify and vrouter-route-map-show commands.


You can also specify metrics and route maps for vRouters configured as OSPF and BGP vRouters.


CLI (network-admin@Leaf1) > vrouter-modify


bgp-redist-static-route-map vrouter route-map name

Specify the route map for BGP redistribution of static routes.

bgp-redist-connected-route-map vrouter route-map name

Specify the route map for BGP redistribution of connected routes.

bgp-redist-ospf-route-map vrouter route-map name

Specify the route map for BGP redistribution of OSPF routes.

ospf-redist-static-route-map vrouter route-map name

Specify the route map for OSPF redistribution of static routes.

ospf-redist-connected-route-map vrouter route-map name

Specify the route map for OSPF redistribution of connected routes.

ospf-redist-bgp-route-map vrouter route-map name

Specify the route map for OSPF redistribution of BGP routes.
