I have two sites that are connected by two p2p DS3's. In each site I have a pair of 4500 switches, and each DS3 has a router at both ends. My setup looks like this:
Switch 1A -- Router1A -DS3- Router2A - Switch 2A
Switch 1B -- Router1B -DS3- Router2B -- Switch 2B
Each pair of switches run HSRP to act as the default gateway for all hosts on Vlan100. Right now I have my DS3's sitting in the same VLAN as the rest of the hosts. The DS3 routers also run HSRP. All devices are part of OSPF in the same area.
When I look at my routing tables I see that OSPF has installed two equal-cost routes to the network on the other side, however, utilization on the links is consistently 2-1. I haven't changed any of the default load-balancing settings, so it should still be using per-destination balancing. Also, since all of the routers are off the same Routed interface, I can't see any stats when I use 'show ip cef x.x.x.x internal'. Do I have a misconfiguration here? Should I be using different routed endpoints for the DS3's on each end?
