Load balancing is enabled by default.  Use the "show etherchannel load-balance" command to see the current algorithm.

Hi Joe,

Are etherchannels load blanacing  by default on 6500 switches, or do I need to configure globally?

port-channel load-balance {src-mac | dst-mac | src-dst-mac | src-ip

show etherchannel load-balance

Thanks,

Colm
