In Figure 1, routers R1 and R2 will send R3 a summarized EIGRP routing update of Routing tables for R1 and R2 contain subnets of the network; therefore, both routers send the summary advertisement across a different major network to R3.

Figure 2 shows the output from the show ip eigrp topology all-links command used to view R3’s complete EIGRP topology table. This verifies that R3 has received the summary route from both R1 at and R2 at The first entry via is the successor and the second entry via is the feasible successor. R1 is the successor because its 1,544 kb/s link with R3 gives R3 a better EIGRP cost to than R2, which is using a slower 1,024 kb/s link.

The all-links option shows all received updates, whether the route qualifies as a feasible successor (FS) or not. In this instance, R2 does qualify as an FS. R2 is considered an FS because its reported distance (RD) of 2,816 is less than the feasible distance (FD) of 2,170,112 via R1.
