Question:

When would the network administrator use the ip bandwidth-percent eigrp as-number percent command?

  • when the connection is serial instead of Ethernet
  • when there is a low bandwidth connection
  • when the connection is on a shared medium
  • when the link is always busy

Explanation: By default, EIGRP will use only up to 50 percent of an interface’s bandwidth for EIGRP information. This prevents the EIGRP process from over-utilizing a link and not allowing enough bandwidth for the routing of normal traffic. However, if a connection is in low bandwidth, the up to 50 percent bandwidth may not be able to keep up the EIGRP information exchange. The ip bandwidth-percent eigrp command can be used to configure the percentage of bandwidth that may be used by EIGRP on an interface in such a scenario.
