metrics = hops?

Discussion in 'Microsoft Certification' started by Gordon J. Rattray, May 28, 2004.

  1. 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.

  3. 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.
