Load-balancing on ASA

Unanswered Question

Hi All,

I know that if I configure several (up to three) default gateways out the same interface on the ASA, then the ASA will load balance the traffic. Now, if I configure several default gateways pointing out different interfaces on the ASA, will the ASA also load balance the traffic, or how will be the ASA behavior?

You can use default routes only out one interface, Default routes out differnet interfaces is not supported.

But why it is not supported?

Is it because the ASA does not support Assymetric Routing because it mess with the state of the connections if it receives the response on a different interface from which it was sent out?

Thank you!
