Load balance

We have 2 DS3's and one ASA 5510. We are running BGP from 2 different providers. How can we load balance/share the connection? My concern is we have an outside block of 10.0.0.0 /26 with one provider and 172.16.0.0 /27 with the other provider. We currenly nat on the 172.16.0.0 What happends if i don't set the local pref in BGP and the 172.16.0.0 goes out the 10.0.0.0 or ISP 2 because it is a better route?

Re: Load balance

You should NAT for 10.0.0.0/26.

By default bgp doesnot support the load balancing. Only single route will be installed in the routing table. If you want to perform the load balancing then you ahve to enter the given command in the bgp configuration.

maximum path 2
