How is everybody?
My book says if a switch is configured with "port-channel load-balance src-dst-ip" and it receives a non ip frame say sna, then it will fall back to" next lowest" method.
My question is: "How are these mehods arranged from higest to lowest?
thanks and have a great weekend
The load balancing is different for different series of switches. For example, by default the 6500 series support source/destination ip for ip packet and source MAC address for non-IP packets. On the other hand, the 3750 series by default support source MAC address for both IP and non-IP packets. Of course, this can be changed.
Here is the output from a 3750:
EtherChannel Load-Balancing Addresses Used Per-Protocol:
Non-IP: Source MAC address
IPv4: Source MAC address
IPv6: Source MAC address
and here are the options:
Switch(config)#port-channel load-balance ?
dst-ip Dst IP Addr
dst-mac Dst Mac Addr
src-dst-ip Src XOR Dst IP Addr
src-dst-mac Src XOR Dst Mac Addr
src-ip Src IP Addr
src-mac Src Mac Addr
have a nice weekend
