Hi, I want to configure Load balancing on L2 & L3 Etherchannels. Please help me what options should I choose in which scenario ? I tried to search summary of this on internet, but unable to find the perfect reply.
The point is to have a good idea about the type of flows and see what parameters change the most often between IP addresses and MAC addresses when the flow transit over the etherchannel. You should then based your load-balancing on this or those parameters.
For example, if you have an L3 etherchannel link between two routers/L3 switches, you should load-balance based on IP information instead of MAC.
If you have a lot of different source MAC addresses sending traffic then use src-mac.
If you have a number of destination MAC addresses on the other side of the channel then use dst-mac.
An example would be: If you have a bunch of servers on one switch and they need to talk to a default gateway on another switch then you would want src-mac since etherchannel will then distribute the load based on the large number of source servers and it wouldn't do much good to use dst-mac because there's only the single MAC of the default gateway.
Hi everyone, I would like to thank you in advance for any help you can provide a newcomer like myself!
