Hi there,

Studying a bit about metrics in RRAS and that and trying to get a grasp on
metrics.

Is a metric equal to a hop or what?

Yes, traditionally. Now, however, a metric represents what is
essentially the "cost" of the path.

To an extent. Really, the metric specifies the cost of following a
particular route. A number of factors can affect the metric, including hop
count, speed/reliability/throughput of the path, or a conscious choice by
the administrator to select a specific path.

Note "Cost" determines the best route therefore the lower the cost the
better the route.
