Routing

What is difference between Load balanceing and load shareing ?

The terms are usually used in ways that are pretty interchangeable and the common useage they mean about the same thing. If you want to look for differences in the technical meaning load sharing means that some traffic goes over one link and some traffic goes over the other link (without control of how much load is on each link). Load balancing means some traffic goes over one link and some traffic goes over the other link and there is an attempt at control of traffic to specify how much is on one link and how much is on the other link.
