I'm a network administrator for an ISP. We are a dual homed BGP shop. We have, in general around 250 Mbps of traffic on each link (2 7206-G2 routers). The problem is, when one link goes down the traffic wouldn't rebalance correctly. We'd end up with about 400 and 100. In order to rebalance it we'd need to reboot the router that was missing traffic, and once it was up, reboot the other router. We've actually moved all of our traffic to the G2 cards from the front cards, which may have fixed the issue. We won't know until we have an outage though.
The main thing I want to know, is there a BGP command that would effect how traffic is balanced after reestablishing the inter link?
Here's my config, minus network statements and changed numbers to protect the innocent. 22.214.171.124 would be the inter link, 126.96.36.199 would be the other ISP

the traffic imbalance happens in the incoming direction or outgoing direction?. There are BGP attributes to influence traffic in both direction; when you failed link comes back the BGP can reshaped the traffic back to normal.
Local Preference for outgoing traffic and AS path prepending for incoming traffic.
