Could I have information on the followings, please.
Can two ACE modules in two chassis process the same traffic in Active-Active mode (load sharing)?
Can four ACE modules in two chassis process the same traffic, two in active-active mode, other two in stanby-standby mode.
In both cases only one 9admin) context is planned.
Thanks in Advance.
Currently you can have only 1 backup.
I think there are plans to have multiple backup in the future but I don't have a date.
I think this is low prioritiy.
Routing is always on.
As long as the traffic is allowed in an access-group on the interface, it will be routed.
Not the same traffic.
You can have 2 active contexts, one on each module.
But because these are different contexts, they must use different virtual ip addresses.
It's the only way to have active-active.
You could have a sort of active-active by not configuring high availability but by using Route Health Injection.
In this case, the 2 blades are independent and they both inject a route for the virtual ip address into your network via a routing protocol.
Traffic is then sent to the 2 blades depending on how your upstream router is configured in presence of 2 routes for the same destination.
