Load balancing

i have five 2mb links from my 7206 bangalore router to 7206 US router from wich i have to load balance.but if i have a very less amount of traffic for example 1.4mb it should take the first link if the data exceeds 1.7mb it should take the second link i have to set the threshold value to 1.7md per link if it exceeds the threshold value it should take second link if the traffic remains less than 1.7 mb it should utilize only one link.pls help me in resolving this.

Re: Load balancing

Hi friend

You could do something like this. The command would differ according to the interface you have. Also you can fine tune the thresholds according to your need.

interface serial x/1

backup load 85 40

backup interface serial x/2

interface serial x/2

backup load 85 40

backup interface serial x/3

interface serial x/3

backup load 85 40

backup interface serial x/4

interface serial x/4

backup load 85 40

backup interface serial x/5

interface serial x/5

Re: Load balancing

Hi Narayan backup load 85 40

85 is the threshold value but what is 40.

Re: Load balancing

Hi Uday,

It should work irrespective of the protocl being running on the router.

For the your second about the vlaue 40 it is " Percentage of the primary line's available bandwidth that the traffic load must be less than to disable backup interface. That means when the traffic is less then 40% on the primary interface the backup interface will go in the backup mode.

HTH,
