FRF 16.1 load balancing

Hi ,

I just want to know how FRF16.1 load balancing works ? At any point of time all of my links are utilised or some of them are used to send the traffic .

Re: FRF 16.1 load balancing

Multilink Frame Relay provides load balancing across the bundle links within a bundle. If a bundle link chosen for transmission happens to be busy transmitting a long packet, the load-balancing mechanism can try another link, thus solving the problems seen when delay-sensitive packets have to wait.

Re: FRF 16.1 load balancing

Hi ,

First of all thanks for ur view . Well as per your view the next link in a bundle will only be used when previous link is busy dealing with another packet / not able to handle a long packet . My concern is if I am using 6T1 links ( as a bundle ) then can I use all the links simultaneously to their full capacity ( 9 MB in this case ) to carry my 9 mb traffic ..

Re: FRF 16.1 load balancing

frame-relay multilink output-threshold (bytes)

Configures the number of bytes that a bundle link will transmit before the load-balancing mechanism causes transmission to roll over to the next available link.

?When configured on the bundle interface, this command applies to all bundle links in the bundle.

This might be helpfull to meet ur objective..

regards,

GP
