Cisco's EIGRP routing protocol is an enhanced distance-vector protocol used in many large enterprise networks due to its scalability and quick convergence time. As with networking in general, troubleshooting EIGRP problems can be an intricate and time-consuming affair, especially due to the large amount of manual data collection that is required to assemble the basis for an intelligent analysis. The new technology of route analytics greatly increases the efficiency of routing problem diagnosis and resolution, by providing network-wide, real-time and historical routing analysis. Route analytics solutions are now utilized by dozens of global Fortune 500 class enterprises, government and military agencies, educational institutions and the world's largest Service Providers. Route analytics solutions that support the EIGRP protocol provide network-wide, real-time and historical monitoring, analysis and troubleshooting of complex EIGRP routing issues. This technical brief illustrates how route analytics can be used to speed detection and resolution of some common EIGRP issues.
