Description

Specify the cost of an OSPF interface. The cost is a routing metric that is used in the link-state calculation.

To set the cost of routes exported into OSPF, configure the appropriate routing policy.

Options

metric—Cost of the route.

Range: 1 through 65,535
Default: By default, the cost of an OSPF route is calculated by dividing the reference-bandwidth value by the bandwidth of the physical interface. Any specific value you configure for the metric overrides the default behavior of using the reference-bandwidth value to calculate the cost of route for that interface.

Required Privilege Level

routing—To view this statement in the configuration.

routing-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
