Hi every body!
In GLBP, routers with highest priority is elected as AVG and the router with 2nd highest priority is elected as standby router.If priorities are same, then router with higher ip address , will become AVG.
Now 2nd step comes, elections of AVFs .
Since AVG has 4 mac addresses to assigns , there could be 4 AVF at most including AVG which also acts as AVF.
My question is what is the criteria to elect AVF?
Say we have we have 8 routers, r1 through r8
r1 is AVG, r2 is standby(both also act as AVF)
Now two more AVF could be selected from the rest of 6 routers,
How will these two AVF be elected? using priority and ip address or weight?
thanks a lot!
the document you have linked is about HSRP and not GLBP.
My understanding is that GLBP has a two dimensions criteria:
priority then ip address to elect AVG and backup AVG
weighting then ip address to elect AVF (but AVF is assigned by AVG)
The only way to demonstrate this would be to have 5 routers in the same LAN segment configuring all them for the same GLBP group and then playing with the parameters to see what happens.
Hope to help
