Dynamic load-balancing based on link load

Hi!

I have a 2821 connected to two ISP with BGP. How can I configure dynamic load-balancing between two ISP (outgoing traffic) based on outgoing links loads?

Hello  Paa,

you cannot do this with BGP only.

you would need optimized edge routing / Performance routing

Hope to help

Actually you can load-balance with BGP using the "BGP dmzlink-bw" feature.

although it doesn load-balance based on load, but based on bandwidth of the links to your SP.

Hello Nhat,

>> although it doesn load-balance based on load, but based on bandwidth of  the links to your SP.

original poster had asked for a way to load balance outbound based on link load

I agree that BGP dmzlink-bw" feature may be of help in dealing with links of different speeds

Hope to help
