The BGP Weight is a Cisco-proprietary Path attribute. The BGP RFC does not define it and other vendors have not defined it either! So I was wondering if there is any specific BGP scenario that path selection is only doable using Weight and no other attributes such as LOCAL_PREF or MED can be used!
I have a feeling that Weight attribute is redundant and the user can use other standard path attributes (MED, LOCAL_PREF, etc.) to manipulate the BGP path selection. Is that right?
