I am trying to understand what the best practice is to set the metric when redistributed BGP to EIGRP. In my case, at my main location, I have it set as the code below. I know that EIGRP only uses k1 and k2 in its calculation. I did not configure this so I am not sure what k1 is 44.2 Mbps when my MPLS circuit is 300Mbps. It looks like my delay is not the default as well.
