I have two connections coming in, one is a 45M link and the other is a 10M link, bgp for the most part is running fine, but the 10M link is getting maxxed out and am staring to experience problems. I would prefer traffic would "default" to the 45 meg connection on the first hssi.
Any ideas on how to accomplish this, I just cant quite get over this little hump.
This information is helpful. One question that Kevin asked becomes critical now: do the EBGP peers advertise more than just a default route. If each EBGP peer advertises some prefixes in addition to any default that they may advertise then you can set weight or local-perference for some of those prefixes to prefer the higher capacity link. This would address outbound traffic but not inbound traffic.
You would almost certainly want to configure a route map and apply it inbound to the peer so that you can prefer SOME (not all) routes from that peer.
The easy way to do that is to do show ip bgp summary and post the output. This will display each peer and how many prefixes they have advertised. For more detail use show ip bgp. This command will show the BGP working table and show what prefixes have been advertised, and by looking at the AS path and the next hop you can figure which peer has advertised which prefix.
This shows that Qwest is advertising 232129 prefixes to you and that Spring is advertising 233302 prefixes to you. This certainly gives you something to work with if you want to move some of the traffic to the higher capacity outbound link.
