We have two offices in our metro area that are connected by a 2MB ATM PVC. Each of these offices also has a 5MB ATM PVC to the same backbone router in another city.
Currently, the traffic between the two local sites is being routed through the other city because the routers are seeing the 5MB PVC as the fastest path. However, there is a lot of traffic between the two sites. Is there a way, other than static routes, to influence the path so that traffic meant to go between the two local routers is passed over the 2MB link? We have had some problems with this PVC going down, so we don't want to use static routes.
Right now, the delay statement for the 5MB circuits is 200. The delay statement for the 2 MB statement is 1500. Do you have any suggestions for where to start tweaking? Should the 2MB PVC delay be changed to less than the 5MB delay? Does the 5MB delay also need to be changed?
When you change delay, change the delay at both interfaces of the link, for optimal routing. If you are changing the 5MB interface delay on Router B, change the delay at other end (on other city) also. Otherwise packets from B will go on 2 MB first, and will return through 5 MB link.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
