I hope I'm in the right forum.
Please let me know!
When a providers LAC which could be many try to establish an L2TP Tunnel connection (1 LAC IP Loopback address pointing to 4 IP Loopback address on 1 LNS) and the tunnels come up and start passing ppp traffic, we notice that the ppp signals contained within the tunnels are unbalanced. Obviously, the tunnels don't come up all at once so it's normal that the ppp traffic being passed would be unbalanced.
My question is "Does this create a problem on the customer end?"
If the Tunnels don't come up at the same time causing the passing of unbalanced ppp traffic, does this or would this create unpleasant internet connections for our customers in respect to if the tunnels did come up at the same time and the sessions were balanced properly?
>> Having 4 flows = L2TP tunnels of different traffic volume can have an impact if there are parallel paths where load balancing can occur."
just to say that only possible issue I see is that of possible saturation of a routed link in the path if multiple paths are available to CEF in intermediate devices and one is more used then others (because it is used to forward traffic for the most loaded L2TP sessions)
Hope to help
