Hi.

How can I load balance, per packet, between 2 fast-ethernet interfaces on a 2811 router running EIGRP, from the same IP source to the same IP destination?

Both links have the same metric and shown in the routing table.

Danny.

Hello Danny,

EIGRP provides two equal cost paths to CEF.


To perform per packet load-sharing


int fx/y


ip load-sharing per-packet


int fx/z

ip load-sharing per-packet


do it on both routers


be aware that some types of traffic like VoIP can be severely affected by per packet load balancing


so per-packet can be an improvement or a worse problem


Hope to help

Giuseppe
