Possible to Route Traffic Based on AVC?

Is it possible to route traffic, based on the Application Visibility Control functions that specific Cisco routers are capable of?  Here's my issue:  I have two ISP's.  One is at about 120% utilization.  The other isn't doing anything.  I can specify ip routes based on IP addresses.  For instance, I can ip route 10.x.x.x to point to our ISP2 firewall, which is our non-utilized provider, for Facebook traffic.  The problem is that sites like this have massive public subnets, so I won't be able to capture all of the traffic destined to Facebook.  Is there a way to route traffic based on application?  I know that Palo Alto firewalls have a way to do Policy Based Forwarding, based on application.  I was wondering if the same was possible with AVC.  Thanks for any help.

Hello.Yes, it's possible and,


Yes, it's possible and, actually, you have 2 ways.

1. use manual load-balanace between links.

2. use PfR to load-balance traffic automatically.

PS: you also will need NAT with route-map.
