Hi,I have a query regarding

Hi,

I have a query regarding load sharing. I want to use 50% usage in one link and another 50% on other link.

The scenario is I have 2 L3 switches. (SW1 and SW2)

In SW1 – int gi 1/0/1 ip – 1.1.1.1/30 which is connected to SW2 int gi1/0/1 ip -1.1.1.2/30

In SW1 – int gi 1/0/2 ip – 2.2.2.1/30 which is connected to SW2 int gi1/0/2 ip -2.2.2.2/30

For testing purpose I had configured 2 loopbacks on SW2 that is-Loopback 0 of ip- 4.4.4.4/32 and loopback 1 of ip 5.5.5.5/32.

On SW1 and SW2 I configured 2 default routes with same AD

SW1- 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 1.1.1.2 
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 2.2.2.2 
SW2- 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 1.1.1.1 
0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 2.2.2.1

Now when I trying to trace route from SW1 to Loopback 0 and Loopback 1 which is configured on SW2,the output shows,

SW1#traceroute 4.4.4.4 
Type escape sequence to abort. 
Tracing the route to 4.4.4.4 
VRF info: (vrf in name/id, vrf out name/id) 
1. 1.1.1.2 0 msec

2.2.2.2 0 msec 
1.1.1.2 0 msec

SW1#traceroute 5.5.5.5 
Type escape sequence to abort. 
Tracing the route to 5.5.5.5 
VRF info: (vrf in name/id, vrf out name/id) 
1. 2.2.2.2 0 msec

1.1.1.2 0 msec 
2.2.2.2 10 msec

My question is why its showing both the routes that is in case of 4.4.4.4,firstly 1.1.1.2 and then 2.2.2.2 and again 1.1.1.2. 
Is it a loop or load balancing is happening perfectly? Or I need to configure Policy based routing ?

Not sure if you have got your answer already. But that's load balancing working perfectly.

static route load balancing

Hi,

Here simple configuration you might use:

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 x.x.x.x

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 y.y.y.y

And NAT if you connect suppose first ISP1 to f0/0 second ISP2 f0/1, example:

access-list 10 permit 192.168.0.0 0.0.0.255

route-map ISP2 permit 10
match ip address 10
match interface FastEthernet0/0

route-map ISP1 permit 10
match ip address 10
match interface FastEthernet0/1

ip nat inside source route-map ISP1 interface FastEthernet0/0 overload
ip nat inside source route-map ISP2 interface FastEthernet0/1 overload

static route load balancing

Hi Naveen,

With default AD it will load balance...You can verify it by doing a traceroute from source to destination.

static route load balancing

Hi Naveen,

Both routes will get installed in the routing table( provided these are  for the same prefix) but it will be the switching process that will do the load-sharing and default is CEF which load-shares per session( src-dst IP pair).

Regards.

Alain
