Best way to perform load sharing

All,

I am looking for a good/efficient way to perform load sharing with two different routers going to two differen providers. I was thinking about OER/PfR but if I want to use something different in the router itself...any suggestions? The router wouldnt be a beefy router..but maybe a decent ISR 2900/3900. Maybe BGP could do the work..??something flow-based would work too.

Thanks,

Thiago

Best way to perform load sharing

I would certainly prefer OER/PFR as you could add a lot of features and funcationlities on the top of basic load-sharing.

The other option would be to use PBR. Have few applications or subnets as next hop as ISP1 and secondary as ISP2 and do the same for rest of the subnets/apps.

Hope this helps.

Amit,

Thanks for your input. But I want something more dinamically that would constantly adjust based on the load...any thoughts?

Thanks,

Thiago
