Two switches (WS-C3560E-12D-S) that are connected through etherchannel (three TenGig interfaces). Port-channels on both switches are in trunking mode. Etherchannel load-balancing configuration for now is: src-dst-ip (source XOR destination IP address).
I want to have a more conveinient way to load-balance traffic between vlan members on both switches in case of failure of one of port-channel member links.
Again: I want functionality for manual, static assignment of port-channel member links (active and standby(failover)) to each VLAN that need transport through the port-channel trunk. It seems to be technically quite possible, as frames that travel in trunk are tagged.
From the case it is evident, that static assignment of 3d TenGig interface as failover for VLAN2 is more preferable than to assign 2d TenGig interface, cause summary of used bandwidth will be less.
LACP does not seem to perform load-balance in port-channel on per-VLAN basis.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
