# protocols mpls-rsvp tunnels tunnel autoroute-announce absolute-metric

Configures a fixed metric to be used for the tunnel by the IGP for the shortest path calculations.

- name
- The tunnel name.

- 1..65535
- The fixed metric value, which can be from 1 through 65535.

Configuration mode

```
protocols {
mpls-rsvp {
tunnels {
tunnel <name> {
autoroute-announce {
absolute-metric <1..65535>
}
}
}
}
}
```

Use this command to configure a fixed metric to be used for the specified tunnel by the Interior Gateway Protocols (IGPs) for its shortest path calculations. The default is the IGP metric.

Use the set form of this command to configure a fixed metric to be used for the tunnel by the IGP for its shortest path calculations.

Use the delete form of this command to delete the configuration of a fixed metric to be used for the tunnel by the IGP for its shortest path calculations.

Use the show form of this command to display the configuration that sets a fixed metric to be used for the tunnel by the IGP for its shortest path calculations.

## Example

The following example shows how to configure 6000 as the IGP metric to be used by the IGP for the shortest path calculations for the RSVP-TE tunnel named pe1-pe2 tunnel.

```
vyatta@R1# set protocols mpls-rsvp tunnels tunnel pe1-pe2 autoroute-announce absolute-metric 6000
```
