    set metric-type


    set metric-type atMetric

    no set metric-type

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Sets the metric type for the destination routing protocol. The no version removes the set clause from a route map.


    • atMetric—Specifies the metric type from the following choices:

      For BGP:

      • external—Reverts to the normal BGP rules for propagating the MED; this is the BGP default
      • internal—Sets the MED of a received route that is being propagated to an external peer equal to the IGP cost of the indirect next hop

      For IS-IS:

      • external—Only the metric of the route itself is considered for comparison
      • internal—Both the metric of the route and the cost to the router that advertised the route are considered for comparison; this is the IS-IS default

      For OSPF:

      • 1—Cost of the external routes is equal to the sum of all internal costs and the external cost
      • 2—Cost of the external routes is equal to the external cost alone; this is the OSPF default
