Load balancing is a requirement for many small business where 4aDSL lines might cost $200 / month but a leased line is more like $2000 / month. (at least in my part of the world)
So there has to be a recommendation for these scenarios yet as far as I can see there just isn't. Except to say (as you did) don't use NAT.
Salaman does offer SiteLocal + UniqueGlobal as one possible solution.
I have been doing some more research on the subject
In RFC4861 (NDP) it says this
Inbound load balancing - Nodes with replicated interfaces may want
to load balance the reception of incoming packets across
multiple network interfaces on the same link. Such nodes
have multiple link-layer addresses assigned to the same
interface. For example, a single network driver could
represent multiple network interface cards as a single
logical interface having multiple link-layer addresses.
So from this I infer that the practice on IPv6 would be to have multiple routers each serving a specific internal unique-local address space. And then have each host with multiple addresses and let the host do the load balancing.
The problem with this is that the only distribution policy is random. (You cant do sequential or load sensitive)
Perhaps ISPs will recognise this requirement and provide load balancing over aDSL now that we have the addresses to do it.
Actually I think ISPs will recognise this business oportunity and offer you to finaly buy their leased lines instead of their "home usage, cheap adsl" lines So I'm pretty sure ISPs wont do anything, besides being happy, that load balancing isn't anymore really working.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
