    Default EIGRP not use HOP COUNT but have a 224 count limit!

    To calculate EIGRP metric you can use this:

    Metric EIGRP = [ K1 * Bandwidth + (K2 * Bandwidth)/(256-load) + K3*Delay ]*[K5/(reliability + K4)]

    But WHY CISCO tell me that EIGRP have a HOP COUNT LIMIT?
    Where you see hop count here?

    Please explain me this concept..

    The hopcount isn't used as a metric in EIGRP indeed, in this case it is used to limit the maximum diameter of an EIGRP network.

    Default Hop Count metric in EIGRP

    EIGRP also uses hop count in its count to infinity loop avoidance methods.
