Assigns a locally-used weight to a neighbor connection for the route selection algorithm.
|remoteaddr||Specifies the IPv4 or IPv6 address of a BGP neighbor.|
|all||Specifies all IPv4 and IPv6 neighbors.|
|weight||Specifies a BGP neighbor weight.|
By default, the weight is 1.
All routes learned from this peer are assigned the same weight. The route with the highest weight is more preferable when multiple routes are available to the same network. The range is 0 to 65,535.
higher local preference
shortest length (shortest AS path)
lowest origin code
route from external peer
lowest cost to Next Hop
This command applies to the current VR or VRF context.
