per-packet load sharing on ME3800X

Hello all,

I have some unequeal EIGRP load-balancing between 2 ME3800X but as the default load-balancing is per-destination I'm out of luck and one link is getting saturated.

I wanted to change load balancing to per-packet and noticed the option is not available.

(config-if)#ip load-sharing ?

  per-destination  Deterministic distribution

Any suggestions on what I can do to better control the load balancing?
