Re: igrp/eigrp load-balancing - how many paths ?

IGRP is dead, so 0. :-)

EIGRP supports as many equal cost paths as the RIB, CEF, and hardware limitations allow. On older images, with most hardware, this is 6. At some point, a fix was made to increase this to 8, which is the current top end. There are plans to make this 8, or even more.

There are some hardware platforms, I think some of the Catalyst series, that are limited to 2 in hardware.

Yes, but it is currently being pulled from the code. I think it's out someplace in 12.3, but I'm not certain where.
