I have an etherchannel set up with 2 ports connecting 2 3550-12Ts. I am trying to steam large amounts of data from 6 ports of the upstream switch to a few clients connected to the downstream switch. How can I force data from a source port to use a specific port in the etherchannel? The only documentation that I can find says that traffic will use the same port for all traffic between 2 hosts.
What I really want to do is have the traffic on ports 1,2 and 3 use the first port in the etherchannel, and traffic from 4, 5 and 6 use the second port of the etherchannel.
I have complete flexibility in the network and can change any / all of the ip addresses for all machines involved. What I really need is to know what I should set them to so I can guarantee the traffic will follow a specific path.
Is the routing algorithm availible so I can calculate what IPs to use for all servers/clients involved to segment the traffic?
This will not get you "this port to that port" loading but might get you a better spread across the channel depending upon the type traffic that is being sent. What your talking about would require PBR (Policy based routing) which, as far as I know, is not there for any L2 policy decisions that would meet your needs.
