Specify the number of paths to a destination to advertise.

Suppose a routing device has in its routing table four paths to a destination and is configured to advertise up to three paths (add-path send path-count 3). The three paths are chosen based on path selection criteria. That is, the three best paths are chosen in path-selection order. The best path is the active path. This path is removed from consideration and a new best path is chosen. This process is repeated until the specified number of paths is reached.
