I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Delay is not "set". It's a result.  As in: how long does a packet have to wait in an output buffer before it can be transmitted.  That's your delay.  You can't predetermine it.

Ah... I see where you're going now.  The delay value is used by routing protocols such as IGRP and EIGRP to calculate the metric. You can override the actual delay as a means of influencing route selection.  This ability to override the actual delay is done with the "delay" command.

But it has no effect on actual delay.  It's just a number.

If you are looking to play with routing, your better of using a metric offset-list per interface.  That adds to the metric instead of overriding the delay portion of the metric.  This is especially good if your delay increases.  Additionally, you can use this with VRF/address family.

It also keeps your "routing logic" with your routing and your interface logic with your interface.
