IGP Algorithm Types
Standards Action
0
Shortest Path First (SPF) algorithm based on link metric. This
is the standard shortest path algorithm as computed by the IGP
protocol. Consistent with the deployed practice for link-state
protocols, Algorithm 0 permits any node to overwrite the SPF path
with a different path based on its local policy.
1
Strict Shortest Path First (SPF) algorithm based on link
metric. The algorithm is identical to Algorithm 0 but Algorithm 1
requires that all nodes along the path will honor the SPF routing
decision. Local policy at the node claiming support for Algorithm
1 MUST NOT alter the SPF paths computed by Algorithm 1.
