6513 Sup720 & load sharing per-destination CEF

I read that per-destination load-sharing via CEF is enabled by default on the Sup720.

I have a few equal-cost static routes and figured that per-destination load-sharing would take place over the equal-cost routes However, when I run the command 'show ip cef 192.168.133.0', There's no mention of load-sharing in the output. Is there something else that needs to be configured ?

Thanks for your help.

Mike

It is load-sharing as both next-hops are listed in CEF and the IP Route output.

Thanks Edison, I appreciate your input.

I just thought that the output of the command would specifically state that the network traffic was getting load balanced via per destination.

Hi Mike,

It does. Look at the show ip cef detail output more closely.
