    Hi all.

    From the output below, RSVP has a preference of [7/1].

    user@R2> show route table mpls detail
    299776 (1 entry, 1 announced)
            *RSVP   Preference: 7/1
                    Next hop type: Router, Next hop index: 832
                    Address: 0xc4d8aa0
                    Next-hop reference count: 2
                    Next hop: via ge-0/0/1.0, selected
                    Label-switched-path R1-R4
                    Label operation: Swap 299808

    What does the '1' in '7/1' stand for?

    Hi Deepak,

    > 3 values might be associated with RSVP Preference (7)

    It is predefined in JUNOS.

    The values are:

    1 -- normal RSVP-TE LSP.
    2 -- point-to-multipoint RSVP-TE LSP.
    3 -- dynamic RSVP-TE LSP (the one, created by the built-in auto-mesh functionality).

    Almost all the time we use the normal RSVP-TE LSP.

    For your reference, the below KB has an example of the "RSVP auto-mesh LSP"

    Find  more information about "Point-to-Multipoint LSPs" in the below link

    Hopefully this help.

    Depending the type of RSVP-TE object describing the type of tunnels, you will have a preference given to it by Junos.

    Unless you have 'advanced' use cases (such as MVPN which could leverage Multipoint LSPs), you would mostly see the `RSVP 7/1 ` preference output.

    Good question.
