Got an issue with a surestream (2*SDSL: 2ATM, 2 DIalers tunning static routes). I am using load sharing as I would like to get the traffic using both line at the same time.
I am using ip cef and the cmd ip load-sharing per-packet on each dialer. In my CEF table I am able to see both virtuall-accesses.
All is working fine ***but**** if one line bounced and comes up, dialer comes up, virtual access come up too, can see the session in my sh users but in the CEF table this virtuall access is not appearing anymore
Need your brain guys
You should not use load sharing per packet.
It cause out of order packet arrival, consequently is very detrimental for most applications.
Thanks for your answer.
I was thinking it was only for voice over ip, in my case we are not using VOIP, will be still an issue?
As if it's not good to use it, I am not sure waht to use to get the both line used at the same time.
Thank you all Will put back the load sharing per destination to improve the BW share. But even with that I still have the bug after bouncing one of the line, once the line comes back up, and i can see the virtual access up under my sh users, I still cannot see it from the CEF table. Could it be an IOS issue?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Please send a capture of the cef table during normal operation and during the issue along with a "show ver" from the router.
Also, once one of the links has bounced (and come back UP) and is missing from the CEF table, what do you do to restore normal operation?
To get it working fine I have to clear the CEF I know that's not good.
In The CEF table below we can see allis working fine, but if Virtual-Access2 bounced and comes up again, it won't appear anymore in teh CEF table.

The symptoms you’re seeing are most probably being caused by bug CSCsh71247. See more details for this bug here (you'll need a cco account)
This bug is fixed in 12.4(13) and above. To confirm whether this is the bug, when the problem occurs again, get a "show adjacency", it should show something like this
Protocol Interface Address
IP Virtual-Access3 point2point(8) (incomplete)
Hope this helps!!!
