Multihoming bgp - load sharing/balance

Hey guys,

Lets see if anyone can help me...

I have one internet router connected to 2 different ISPs (SO 2 DIFFERENT ASs). Im using the bgp as path multipath relax, however, the AS-PATH length I receive from the ISPs are different, therefore, the router only adds one route to router table... im not being able to do the load sharing... off course, if the provider with the short As_path length goes down, the router starts sending the traffic to second ISP...
I want to load share between the two isp's all the time. Does anyone knows who to do it?

BTW, I'm trying to load balance/sharing the outgoing traffic...

Did you try using the "bgp bestpath as-path ignore" command? and see if it helps??

Multihoming bgp

Tks Mir but it didn't work....

I can't use "bgp bestpath as-path ignore" along with “bgp bestpath as-path multipath-relax”. Once I take out the “bgp bestpath as-path multipath-relax” and add " ignore" it keeps adding only the best route to RIB...

Metric, local Pref and weight are all the same...

still searching but no luck so far...
