I've heard about RIP, IGRP, EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, IS-IS and FRAME RELAY routing but never heard about round robin routing. I've had google about this but not come up with anything related. I would appreciate if anyone could explain what is round robin routing.
we can speak of round robin forwarding that is when multiple paths exist to reach a destination and per packet load balancing is used.
So round robin routing can be seen as process switching of packets.
Recent CEF implementations allow to perform per packet load balancing without a need to disable CEF (that is forwearding optimization technique used on Cisco routers and multilayer switches in SW on the first ones with the help of dedicated hardware on the second ones )
Standard CEF use per flow load balancing: given a flow with a specific SA and specific IP DA the same path is used for all packets classified on this flow.
per packet load balancing sends the subsequent packets of the same flow ( IP SA, IP DA) on the different paths and this is a round robin packet forwarding.
Then, in other contexts like server load balancing again round robin load balancing can be used in this case each new client TCP connection to the virtual IP address is "routed" to a different real server.
Distribution listsA distribution-list is used to control routing update either coming to your router or leaving from the router. Distribution-lists work on a variety of different IOS routing protocols like EIGRP, RIP, and OSPF. Distribution-li...
Policy Based Routing (PBR) Policy based routing is use to path manipulation. It is used for implementing policy that causes the packet to take a different direction. Policy based routing allows source based routing. Routing table is destin...
BGP community Local-AS Local-AS is a well known BGP community and its use in confederations scenarios to prevent the transmit of traffic outside the local-as. If you are not sure about what is BGP communities are and how its work then I ad...
BGP Communities_No-advertise configuration
The community attribute is a transitive optional attribute. Communities can be used to mark a set of prefixes that share a common property. Any BGP router can tag routes in incoming and out...
BGP route reflector (RR) configuration of two RR servers
We have already learned what route reflector is and why we use route reflector. In this section we will see the configuration of two RR servers and will learn about deep RR behavior...
