Slugged – used in relation to IP routing protocols (routing)
Term used to describe that a route has had it metric modified to make it higher cost and therefore not the preferred route to a given destination. Proabably derived from boxing concept of “knocking it out”.
“having the route through the network to the VIP’s relevant VLAN slugged.”
“The routing table entry has been slugged by adding a 20 microsecond delay to the routing metrics for EIGRP to the standby context MSFC. This ensures the optimum route is stored in the routing table and the data follows the optimum route to the active context.”
