Hi, i have the same stream coming from 2 different
directions. The 2 routers in the multicast server are using hsrp. My question is, can i load balance the stream?The method in use is SSM.
PIM (dense/sparse) will not load balance multicast packets due to prune behavior to prevent duplicate packets. However, GRE tunnel(s) can be used to "load balance" multicast traffic. There is also another global command "ip multicast multipath" which allows load balancing But it will only load balance If multiple sources exist for the same group(s):
