CMTS - Load Balancing Questions

Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2009

Good day,

<br />

<br />I'm looking for some assistance. If an interface full of cable modem customers is converted from a single to dual downstream or upstream, i've heard of scenarios where the load balancing stops functioning and needs to be restarted or reset. I checked the cisco command site and noticed "clear cable load-balance". If I perform "clear cable load-balance state" will this actually reset load balancing? Are there other commands which will stop and start (re-initiate) load balancing on all cable interfaces off a UBR10K cisco cmts device?

<br />

<br />I'm also wondering what type of command can be used for testing load balancing on dual downstream. I noticed the command "test cable load-balance 00.00.00 (mac address). This looks to be testing dual upstream I believe, I receive this response if I attempt the command on a device load balancing on a dual downstream interface "No second upstream channel in same load balancing group.

<br />Skipping test.Test summary:

<br />No second upstream channel in same load balancing group.

<br />Skipping test.Test summary:"

<br />

<br />Are there commands to test cable modem load balancing on dual downstream interfaces?

<br />

<br />Thanks much!

I have this problem too.
