Re: Multicast Load balancing

If you have a good number of sources, you can configure load splitting with the global command 'ip multicast multipath'. Otherwise, you would need to use GRE tunnels or bundle interfaces.

You can find more info about 'ip multicast multipath' here:

You can find more info about load splitting using GRE tunnels here:

You may also be able to utilize Anycast-RP:
