We have glbp running in our network.I need to check if loadbalancing if indeed happening with this.I can see round robin happening.But how to see it in real based on some other parameters ,How can we check this?

2)Is there any other thing that can be configured to further make this more effecient?

3)the track feature is being used with some route tracking to some ip network inside providers network possibly.

Can better tracking be configured using other parameters, which would give better & fast switchover?

Current configuration is as below:

track 5 ip route reachability

glbp 5 ip

glbp 5 preempt

glbp 5 weighting 100 lower 95

glbp 5 weighting track 1 decrement 10

glbp 5 forwarder preempt delay minimum 0

For fast convergence you can adapt the timers.

standby 5 timers msec 300 1

By default the hello interval is 3 seconds and the holdtime 10 seconds. Above it's changed to 300msec - 1 second (hello - holdtime)
