Distance Vector Routing Protocols
 Characteristics of Distance Vector
  Routing protocols.
 Network discovery process using
  Routing Information Protocol (RIP).
 Identify the conditions leading to a
  routing loop and explain the implications
  for router performance.
  Review - Dynamic Routing Protocols

 Function(s) of Dynamic
 Routing Protocols:
  Dynamically share
   information between
  Automatically update
   routing table when
   topology changes.
  Determine best path to a
 Interior Gateway Routing
Two Main Approaches
 Distance Vector Protocols
   E.g., RIP (Routing Information
 Link State Protocols
   E.g., OSPF (Open Shortest Path First)
 Our Focus
   Distance Vector Protocols - RIP
Routing Protocols- Criteria to

Criteria used to compare routing
 protocols includes
    Time to convergence
    Scalability
    Resource usage
    Implementation & maintenance
    Routing Protocol Algorithm
   Algorithm - procedure for accomplishing a certain task
Distance Vector Routing Protocols

 A router using distance vector routing
 protocols knows 2 things:
    Distance to final destination
    Vector, or direction, traffic should be
 Distance Vector Routing Protocols
 Periodic updates
 Triggered updates
 Exchange
  information with
    Entire routing
  table is included with
  routing update
     Routing Table Maintenance
 Triggered Updates
  Conditions in which
   triggered updates
   are sent
    Interface changes
    Route becomes
    Route is placed in
      routing table
        Network Discovery
 Initial Exchange of Routing
    If a routing protocol is configured
     then routers will exchange
     routing information
 Routing updates received from
  other routers
    Router checks update for new
       If there is new information
          Metric is updated
          New information is stored in
            routing table
Routing Table - Periodic Updates
 Regular Time Intervals in which a router sends out
 its entire routing table to its neighbours.
     Routing Table Maintenance

 RIP uses 4 timers
   -Update   timer
   -Invalid timer
   -Holddown timer
   -Flush timer
 Exchange of Routing
   Router convergence is
    reached when
      All routing tables in the
       network contain the same
       network information
   Routers continue to
    exchange routing
      If no new information is
       found then Convergence
       is reached
RIP Commands
• Using router rip and network
 commands to enable RIP.
• Enabling RIP on an IP-addressed
• Monitoring IP packet flow using the
 show IP protocol command.
• The show ip route command.
Configuring RIP
The show ip protocols Command
Troubleshooting RIP Update Issues

• debug ip rip
• show ip rip database
• show ip protocols {summary}
• show ip route
• debug ip rip {events}
• show ip interface brief
