I have a BGP session with a transit provider in two different cities. We are both using the same AS at both locations. I am expecting them to be sending me MED's for me to use for routing decisions of outbound traffic. (ie. so I can send traffic to the router that is nearest my destination, other customers in the same city)
How can I verify that I am really receiving those MED's?
I have Brocade XMR's.
If I do a
show ip bgp routes, I see the following:
Total number of BGP Routes: 445744 Status A:AGGREGATE B:BEST b:NOT-INSTALLED-BEST C:CONFED_EBGP D:DAMPED E:EBGP H:HISTORY I:IBGP L:LOCAL M:MULTIPATH m:NOT-INSTALLED-MULTIPATH S:SUPPRESSED F:FILTERED s:STALE Prefix Next Hop MED LocPrf Weight Status 2 22.214.171.124/24 4.53.x.x 0 100 0 BE AS_PATH: 3356 15169 3 126.96.36.199/22 4.53.x.x 0 100 0 BE AS_PATH: 3356 3549 6939 6939 7545 56203
Browsing through several pages of the output, the MED always shows 0. I don't want to manually check all 1/2 million routes.
