when to use flow based load sharing?

Hey,

is there any reason to use flow based (src_id,dst_id) based load balancing instead of exchange based (src_id,dst_id,ox_id) ?

exchange based will give me better load balancing in many scenarions.

Why would i want to change the default of exchange based to flow based???

(except when using FICON or HP EVA continuos access of course)

regards,

Michael

Re: when to use flow based load sharing?

I think you nailed it on the head there. Flow based is less then ideal, and used in scenarios where backwards compatibility is required.

Other than that, exchange based load balancing will ensure the most optimal distribution of traffic across your links.
