The video takes you through the concept of Cisco MPLS Traffic Engineering (TE) metric. We will first get to know the two types of metric; IGP and TE. We will then focus on the two common forwarding options; Autoroute Announce and Forwarding Adjacency, as you will see that depending on which forwarding option you are using, the path metric gets calculated and manipulated differently which directly effect traffic routing decision. We will try to exercise our knowledge by attempting to load balancing traffic between IP path and TE tunnel.
Part 2 of this video goes over characteristics of tunnel metric with Autoroute Announce
