Since you mentioned this, what would be the best way to load balance etherchannel links. I have a situation at work where I have 2 10gig ports bounded by an etherchannel interconnecting two core switches. Once in a while a get discards on all etherchannel elements on one side only, the other side is clean. If you know of a fool proof solution how to load balance please help!

I have an issue at work, where a 20 gig pipe is having discards. Everything looks normal. It's an ether-channel between the two core routers in the Data center. Please give some pointers on what I need to check. So far I can't find anything wrong with the ports and what cause it to drop packets. Only one side drops packets the other side of the link is clean. I may have to load balance vlans but I need to know the safest way to do that because this is two core switches that I am dealing with and I do not want drop the links. I provided some output below, let me know if more info is needed. rtrcorp1g-02#show etherchannel 3 port-channel Port-channels in the group: ---------------------- Port-channel: Po3 (Primary Aggregator) ------------ Age of the Port-channel = 659d:12h:34m:38s Logical slot/port = 14/3 Number of ports = 2 HotStandBy port = null Port state = Port-channel Ag-Inuse Protocol = LACP Fast-switchover = disabled Load share deferral = disabled Ports in the Port-channel: Index Load Port EC state No of bits ------+------+------------+------------------+----------- 0 55 Te3/13 Active 4 1 AA Te6/13 Active 4 rtrcorp1g-02#show etherchannel load-balance module 3 EtherChannel Load-Balancing Configuration: src-dst-ip mpls label-ip EtherChannel Load-Balancing Addresses Used Per-Protocol: Non-IP: Source XOR Destination MAC address IPv4: Source XOR Destination IP address IPv6: Source XOR Destination IP address MPLS: Label or IP
