You need to know a little about your traffic and how a channel works. If you have a single system at each end, with a single IP address and a single MAC address running a single connection, you will not get load balancing.
If you gave a router at each end, carrying lots of traffic for many systems, by default it will not balance, but you can get it to. Similarly, if you have a router one end, and server the other, you may not get the balancing you want.
The options are:
port-channel load-balance ?
dst-ip Dst IP Addr
dst-mac Dst Mac Addr
dst-port Dst TCP/UDP Port
src-dst-ip Src XOR Dst IP Addr
src-dst-mac Src XOR Dst Mac Addr
src-dst-port Src XOR Dst TCP/UDP Port
src-ip Src IP Addr
src-mac Src Mac Addr
src-port Src TCP/UDP Port
Giving lots of options. You need to know what the traffic is to pick the most appropriate.
