Article | Jan. 19, 2011

“Traceroute” is a utility that’s commonly used when troubleshooting IP networks, but many network managers at the CCNA level and beyond aren’t really sure how it works or what you can do with it.

The History Behind EIGRP

Article | Feb. 16, 2011

Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) was a Cisco-proprietary Distance-Vector (D-V) classful routing protocol - basically an improved version of RIPv1. Like other D-V protocols, each IGRP router periodically flooded its routing table, but it differed from RIP in two ways. First, RIP’s advertisement interval was thirty seconds but IGRP’s was ninety seconds, which allowed IGRP to scale to larger networks than RIP. Second, RIP used a simple hop count metric, but IGRP’s more sophisticated metric was based on minimum path bandwidth and total path delay, with options to include link reliability and interface loading.
