load-balancing in eompls

hy guys,

i read a previous post regarding how the

load-balancing is done for eompls.

someone says that the inner label (vc label) is responsable for this.

sincerely, if someone wants to explain me much deep how this works, it will be

very appreciate.

also, what is the meaning of the control word in the vc setup procedure ?

Re: load-balancing in eompls

Load-balancing in the core is indeed based on the inner label (vc label) for EoMPLS.

So if the P router has many outbound interfaces for a given LSP, it will use that innner label to compute the hash value to select the outbound interface for that specific packet.

For an explanation on the control word please refer to the Martini encapsulation draft:

Hope this helps,
