I am trying to understand what load balancing method is used on a port channel on a Nexus switch . I have a server connected by a VPC to two Nexus switches. The nexus switches are only acting as layer 2 switches. I have a 6509 connected via a upstream link that does all of the routing for my VLANS. If have a server connected to the Nexus switches and it talks to a server on my 6509 what load balancing happens on the Nexus going across VPC 27 which is a layer 2 trunk going up to my 6509. Is it done on layer 2 or layer 3 flows?
My Nexus shows the default load balancing configurations
Port Channel Load-Balancing Configuration: System: source-dest-ip
Port Channel Load-Balancing Addresses Used Per-Protocol: Non-IP: source-dest-mac IP: source-dest-ip source-dest-mac
Thanks For the Help
I have attached a simple diagram to help in the explanation
