Configuring two default gateways

Hello all,

I would like to know if the CSS supports the configuration of two default routes and if it is supported by Cisco?

The goal of this is to perform load balancing between the two default gateways.

Thanks in advance for your answer.

Regards.

Alex

Re: Configuring two default gateways

Hi Alex,

Yes, The CSS can handle two default gateways. Give the command twice. For eg.

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.1 1

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.2 2

In this eg, the 10.10.10.1 will have priority as the metric is 1. However, if you want to load balance between them set the metric 1 for both of them.

Hope this helps.

Re: Configuring two default gateways

Hello,

First at all, thanks for your answer.

When configuring the same metric, How will the CSS (in my case 11500 series) handle the load balancing (per flow,...)?

Thanks in advance for your question.

Best regards.
