load balancing via static routes

I have cisco 7206 VXR (c7200-is-mz.121-12b) with 2 X PA-8E1, all 16 E1 ports are connected with my remote office and I tried to load balance the traffic via static routes but the max paths shown in ip cef are six, can someone help me

Re: load balancing via static routes

how many paths do you see when you do a sh ip route.

Ip route does not have any limitations. i had used 8 static routes for loadbalancing in my lab and all the routes were entered in the routing table.

Not sure though whether CEF supports more than 6 routes. if this is indeed a limitation, then you can bundle six links together and have loadbalancing over all the 16 links

HTH, rate if it does

Re: load balancing via static routes

I see only 6 paths, any options other than multilink ? coz multilink is cpu intensive and my router utl. is already above 75%

Can you post running configuration of your 7206 router, and also sh ip route

configuration attached.

Re: load balancing via static routes

Could be an IOS bug or a limitation within CEF.

I will try to simulate it in my lab.
