load balancing on external routes

Hi,

we have a group of routers all running OSPF process for routing. We plan to move to EIGRP as OSPF is not supporting load balancing. If we seperate network in two different parts as one with OSPF process and one with EIGRP process. And then redistribute the routes in both the parts. Is it possible to load balance externally learned routes in EIGRP routers. Is it possible to load balance the traffic in routers running OSPF ?

thanx

I am confused about your statement that you are moving to EIGRP because OSPF does not support load balancing. OSPF does support load balancing (over equal metric paths). EIGRP does support load balancing over equal metric paths and can do load balancing over unequal metric paths using the variance command.

Both EIGRP and OSPF will support load balancing over external routes assuming that they see paths with equal metric and route type.
