LACP Load Balancing Method

We have two stack of 3750-X switchs interconnected through LACP, and a CheckPoint Firewall connected to one of the stack. The Firewall use a LACP bond to connect to the 3750-X Stack. On the Cisco switches we don't use any Layer3 functionality.

Since the switch are used in Layer2 mode, can we define the a load balancing method that use IP informations ?

For example Can we change the load balancing method from src-mac to src-dst-ip ?

LACP Load Balancing Method

As far as i know. Yes we can configure loadbalancing based on source & destination IP. The switch can understand it in though in layer2 mode.

LACP Load Balancing Method

  Hi,

yes you can choose the method of Load balancing in LACP:

port-channel load-balance {dst-ip | dst-mac | src-dst-ip | src-dst-mac | src-ip | src-mac}

Configure an EtherChannel load-balancing method.

The default is src-mac.

Select one of these load-distribution methods:

dst-ip—Load distribution is based on the destination-host IP address.

dst-mac—Load distribution is based on the destination-host MAC address of the incoming packet.

src-dst-ip—Load distribution is based on the source-and-destination host-IP address.

src-dst-mac—Load distribution is based on the source-and-destination host-MAC address.

src-ip—Load distribution is based on the source-host IP address.

src-mac—Load distribution is based on the source-MAC address of the incoming packet.
