The set protocols bgp bestpath bandwidth command can be used to control link bandwidth processing on the receiver.
The delete protocols bgp bestpath bandwidth command disables the link bandwidth controlling processing on the receiver.
set protocol bgp [vrf <vrf-name>] bestpath bandwidth <ignore|skip-missing|default-weight-for-missing>
delete protocols bgp [vrf <vrf-name>] bestpath bandwidth <ignore|skip-missing|default-weight-for-missing>
Optional. Specifies a VRF name. The value is a string. It’s a user-defined VRF set by the command set ip vrf <vrf-name> [description <string>].
|bandwidth <ignore|skip-missing|default-weight-for-missing>||Specifies link bandwidth controlling processing on the receiver. The different options imply behavior as follows:|
• ignore: Ignore link bandwidth completely for route installation (i.e., do regular ECMP, not weighted)
• skip-missing: Skip paths without link bandwidth and do UCMP among the others (if at least some paths have
• default-weight-for-missing: Assign a low default weight (value 1) to paths not having link bandwidth
This configuration is per BGP instance similar to other BGP route-selection controls; it operates on both IPv4-unicast and IPv6-unicast routes in that instance. In an EVPN network, this configuration (if required) should be implemented in the tenant VRF and is again applicable for IPv4-unicast and IPv6-unicast, including the ones sourced from EVPN type-5 routes.
• This example is a FRR configuration on a receiver to skip paths without link bandwidth.
