Re: difference between load balancing and load sharing
Please could someone differentiate between load sharing and loadbalancing with some example.
Load sharing means one can split the traffic from a network to be transported by different routers (paths). That's exactly what Cisco does with MHSRP. The document on Configuring Multichassis Multilink PPP states that when it tells it to configure half of the hosts with one default gateway and the second half with the other. Eg: PBR configuration in routers for link distribution for host subnets.
On the other hand, load balancing means distributing the traffic evenly and dynamically among different paths to avoid link congestion and saturation. This can be done in a packet-by-packet basis or per destination in a round-robin fashion. The packets sent by a host follow different paths to the same destination. All paths belong to all hosts.
"Many people use the terms load sharing a load balancing to refer to the same option. However, with the term load balancing, many expect to have equal distributed loads across multiple paths. This book uses the term load sharing to describe more accurately what occurs with CEF and fast switching. In essence, load sharing is transmitting packets to a destination IP address over more than one path."
So as you see, every author can define his exact definition ot those terms.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
