protocols ospfv3 auto-cost reference-bandwidth <bandwidth>

Sets the reference bandwidth method for calculating administrative cost.

set protocols ospfv3 [ process process-id ] auto-cost reference-bandwidth bandwidth
delete protocols ospfv3 [ process process-id ] auto-cost reference-bandwidth
show protocols ospfv3 [ process process-id ] auto-cost reference-bandwidth

The default reference bandwidth is 100 Mbps.

process-id
An OSPFv3 process ID. Enter alphanumeric characters.
bandwidth
The reference bandwidth rate in Mbps. The bandwidth ranges from 1 to 4294967.

Configuration mode

protocols {
	ospfv3 {
		process process-id {
			auto-cost 
				{
					reference-bandwidth bandwidth
				}
		}
	}
}

Use this command to set a reference bandwidth for calculating OSPFv3 administrative cost. The OSPFv3 metric is calculated as the reference bandwidth divided by the actual bandwidth.

An explicitly set cost for an area overrides automatically calculated values.

Use the set form of this command to set the reference bandwidth method for calculating OSPFv3 administrative cost.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the default reference bandwidth.

Use the show form of this command to display the OSPFv3 auto-cost configuration.
