BGP default local preference in Huawei CLI

Lets assume that we have a topology like in below picture:

1. AR1, AR2 and AR3 are in AS 100.


2. AR4 is in AS 200.
3. Loopback 100 of router AR1 and loopback 0 of router AR4 are advertised by BGP.

What we want to do is to configure default local preference attribute, which will determine the
optimal route, for traffic that leaves AS 100. In our case, the whole traffic leaving AS 100 will go
through AR3.

If a BGP device obtains multiple routes from different IBGP peers and these routes have different
next hops to the same destination, the BGP device will select the route with the greatest Local_Pref
value.

If you want to recall how to configure BGP, just go to basic BGP in Huawei CLI.

For simplicity, all configuration is omitted here and attached below:

AR1,AR2,AR3,AR4

Check IP routing and BGP routing tables of router AR1:

As you can see in the IP routing table, Loopback0 of router AR4 is available through IBGP, with the
next hop 10.1.1.2 (AR2). From BGP routing table you can notice that there are 2 paths to network
4.4.4.4/32. One of them is chosen as the best path by BGP.

Lets focus on Local Preference attribute. In our case, we can see that both paths have the same local
preference value. Now we will change it to let BGP to choose the best path, based on local
preference attribute:

[AR2]bgp 100
[AR2-bgp]default local-preference 200

[AR3]bgp 100
[AR3-bgp]default local-preference 300

Lets check IP and BGP routing tables of AR1 once again:

We can use tracert command to check how traffic is going:

[AR1]tracert -a 100.100.100.100 4.4.4.4


traceroute to 4.4.4.4(4.4.4.4), max hops: 30 ,packet length: 40,press CTRL_C to break
1 10.1.2.2 110 ms 50 ms 50 ms
2 150.2.2.2 190 ms 150 ms 120 ms

It means that AR3 router is a gateway for the whole outgoing traffic leaving AS 100.

Lets check IP routing table of router AR4:

As you can see the whole incoming traffic from AS 200 is going through AR2. So we have proved that
BGP local preference attribute is applicable only for traffic leaving AS.
