It is ... if you have a nice small network, and you want to run something like
RIP but don't want the overheads associated with rip v1...
Try doing un-equal cost load balancing using OSPF !
With IGRP it's a single command away.
If you are looking at IGRP then add an E for effect, and run eigrp with the
same config - and get all the benefits of a link state routing protocol.
No fuss, no bother - no interoperability with anyone else :-(
