    BGP MED Calculation

    Flexin

      Hi guys.

       

      have a quick querey about BGP med. I thought that med was always set to 0 unless changed by a route map . I have been running a ospf topology with 2 seperate bgp edge routers connecting to one singular bgp speaker router and the med is being set automatically.

       

      How is this value set and what makes up the calculation.

       

      i have done some testing and i have found bandwidth of a link in the path affects it but would like to know how its making this descision.

       

      thanks guys
