disable bgp multipath-relax

disable bgp multipath-relax


Disables BGP multipath-relax feature, which modifies the definition of an equal cost BGP route.

Syntax Description

multipath-relax Selects BGP multipath relax feature.


This feature is disabled by default.

Usage Guidelines

This feature modifies the definition of equal cost BGP routes as specified in RFC-4271. In particular, routes with the same AS-path length, but differing AS numbers in the path are not considered equal cost by default. However, with multipath-relax enabled, routes with the same AS-path length can have differing AS number values in the AS-path and still be considered equal cost.

BGP must be disabled (disable bgp ) first to disable this feature.


The following example disables the BGP multipath-relax feature:

disable bgp multipath-relax

Platform Availability
