    tunnel mpls autoroute metric


    tunnel mpls [ traffic-eng ] autoroute metric { absolute | relative } metricValue

    no tunnel mpls [ traffic-eng ] autoroute metric

    Release Information

    Command introduced before JunosE Release 7.1.0.


    Specifies the tunnel metric. The value determines tunnel preference when there is more than one tunnel or native IP path to a tunnel endpoint. A lower value is preferred to a higher value. When you set up multiple tunnels, if the primary tunnel goes down, the existing tunnel with the lowest metric is used immediately. If you specify an absolute value from 1–2147483647, this value overrides the metric for the path provided by the IGP. If you specify a relative value from –10 to +10, this value is subtracted from (–) or added to (+) the metric for the path provided by the IGP. The no version restores the default value, relative 0, meaning that the tunnel metric is the IGP value.


    • traffic-eng—Specifies optional keyword for compatibility with non–E Series implementations
    • absolute—Specifies that the metric is an absolute value
    • relative—Specifies that the metric is a signed relative value
    • metricValue—Preference value for a path; absolute values are in the range 1–2147483647; relative values are in the range –10–+10
