load sharing and load balance

Hi,

load balancing: are you gonna use multiple paths to forward packets to same destination network

load sharing: what is the ratio of the load balancing, for equal cost this is 1:1 and for EIGRP unequal cost it is the ratio of the metrics.

Regards.

Alain

load sharing and load balance

Hi,

different documents/books are using both terms for the same: multiple paths to the destination used at the same time.

BR,

Milan
