Question

What routing algorithm does the Capacity Planner use?

Answer

The CP is based off a modified djikstra algorithm that generates the shortest valid path based on constraints of the types of devices traversed. By default it does not take into account load balancing across links, but simple equal-hop load balancing can be enabled from the Advanced Parameters interface. Since the shortest path algorithm is always used, specifying different routing protocols in the IP routing attributes has no effect.
