I know it’s only a line what you need to implement ECMP with BGP, as follows:
switch01(config-router-bgp)# maximum-paths 4 ecmp 4
What I don’t get is the difference between “maximum-paths” and “ecmp”, official documentations states:
“The maximum-paths command controls the maximum number of parallel eBGP routes that the switch supports. The default maximum is one route. The command provides an ECMP (equal cost multiple paths) parameter that controls the number of equalcost paths that the switch stores in the routing table for each route.”
But at least for me this is not clarifying at all. I still think both parameters are the same.
Anybody that could shed some light on this?
Thanks in advance,
