Load balancing with default routes..

Hi,

Is it possible to load balance with default routes? We get load balance or share.

Thanks in advance...

Regards...

Ashok.

OF course. You can write to static route for a destination with same admin distance (say default:1).This will basically provide per-destination load balancing (packets to host A from first route, if a new packet arfrives to another host B, from the second route and so on) for fast switching interfaces. With CEF you can achieve same per-destination or more granular per-packet load balancing.

Re: Load balancing with default routes..

CEF will not do per destination load sharing--it does per source/destination pair load sharing.... Process switching will do per packet, fast will do per destination (sort-of, it depends on the way in which process switched packets hit the routing table, and other factors). CEF will do per packet or per source/destination pair.
