gateway load balancing protocol

Hi,

Could someone clarify me how does a secondary virtual forwarder assumes the role of the active virtual forwarder between rest, when an AVF fails? (is there any priority?)

Thanks a lot

Re: gateway load balancing protocol

Hello Edison,

Thanks for your reply.

What really confuses me about the "priority" is that -as your link describes- is used for election and redundancy of the AVG(gateway) not a AVF.

Also in any command reference the "priority" is described as a way to affect the election and redundancy of the VFG for a group.

I don't think that there is any command for setting the priority for a virtual forwarder number.

I would really appreciate any response.

Thanks

You are right, I should've read your query more carefully. On GLBP, both routers will be forwarding. There isn't a priority on what device forwards the packet, it relies on the selected algorithm to make that decision.
