BGP load balancing.

Hi Friends,

I have two MPLS links with BGP from 2 different ISPs with diff Bandwidth capacities.say 8 Mbps and 4 Mbps. My requirement is 8 Mb link as primary and 4 Mb link as secondary ,first load should fullfill 8 Mb.( Means in 10 Mb of traffic 8 Mb should go to 8Mb link and remaining 2 Mb link on 4 Mb link).

For another location equally load balance is required.

could you plz provide configuration for these senarios. I am refering Multihome BGP notes but I am unable prepare the config for these senarios.Plz give me a link/book for Adv BGP.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions

Re: BGP load balancing.

Hi Gummadi,

True load balancing can't be accomplished in BGP by default. This is because BGP selects only one best path to each destination. However, you can accomplish load sharing with BGP.
