Command:

set metric-type


Mode:

Router(config-route-map)#


Syntax:

set metric-type {internal | external | type-1 | type-2}
no set metric-type {internal | external | type-1 | type-2}

 

Syntax Description:

internal Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) internal metric, or IGP metric as the MED for BGP.
external IS-IS external metric.
type-1 Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) external Type 1 metric.
type-2 OSPF external Type 2 metric.

 

Command Description:

To set the metric type for the destination routing protocol, use the set metric-type command in route-map configuration mode. To return to the default, use the no form of this command.

This command is disabled by default.

Use the route-map (IP) global configuration command with the match and set route-map configuration commands to define the conditions for redistributing routes from one routing protocol into another, or for policy routing. Each route-map command has an associated list of match and set commands. The match commands specify the match criteria--the conditions under which redistribution or policy routing is allowed for the current route-map command. The set commands specify the set actions--the particular redistribution or policy routing actions to perform if the criteria enforced by the match commands are met. The no route-map command deletes the route map.

The set route-map configuration commands specify the redistribution set actions to be performed when all of the match criteria of a route map are met.


Example:

The following example sets the metric type of the destination protocol to OSPF external Type 1:

Router(config)# route-map map-type
Router(config-route-map)# set metric-type type-1
