Re: GLBP vs HSRP

There is lot of advantages are there with HSRP (interface tracking, objext tracking) and the same faetures are supported by GLBP also..but the only main difference is , with HSRP , more than one gateway should be used for the traffic get loadbalanced but with GLBP no need to have multiple Gateways.....

Re: GLBP vs HSRP

Both are gateway redundancy protocol.But with HSRP ,for loadbalancing the traffic , we need to have multiple HSRP groups as well as multiple default gateways.With GLBP , the loadbalancing can be perfromed amongs routers with a single default gateway.....

Hope to help

Re: GLBP vs HSRP

So in other words, there is no advantage using HSRP right? Might as well using GLBP in all deployment?

Re: GLBP vs HSRP

Because by default GLBP able to load balance two gateways while HSRP unable to do that. So my question is at what kind of scenario will be HSRP useful over GLBP?

Re: GLBP vs HSRP

If you have 2 connections and the requirement is that the traffic should use the first link as long as it is available.In such scenarios HSRP will be useful over GLBP ( no need for load balancing )
