HSRP ..VRRP ...GLBP arghh !!!!!!!!!!!

There seems to be many ways to form a HSRP type relationship between two routers and I am trying to decide the best way .

Essentially we have two routers on the same lan with 2 x 2mb outwards. ( routing protocol can be anything )

Hsrp balances but default timers are fairly long 10secs ( I know these can be adjusted )

Will VRRP be any quicker on a router ?

Will GLBP be a better option ? as it load balances? is it any quicker in failover ?

Any advice would be great

Re: HSRP ..VRRP ...GLBP arghh !!!!!!!!!!!

The timers should be adjustable on each of those protocols, so one shouldn't have an inherent advantage over any other with respect to failover speed.

I'd use GLBP if outbound load sharing is desirable, or the venerable HSRP otherwise.
