EIGRP Route Checker

The EIGRP metric checker was designed to verify the EIGRP attributes of an IP route. This script will telnet/ssh into a list of routers and perform a “show ip route x.x.x.x” for a list of IP subnets. For each subnet, the actual EIGRP attributes of the route are extracted and compared against the expected attributes, which are predefined in an input file. ¬†Within a few seconds you can tell if any of your key network routing information has changed from its expected behavior. ¬†The EIGRP Attributes checked by the script are:

  • Next Hop
  • Administrative Distance
  • Metric
  • Delay
  • Hop Count
  • Route Tag
