    Load Sharing 4430 (2) ISP's different bandwidths

    olywrestle New Member

      I have found the documentation to enable load balancing. I want to implement on a per-destination basis. But I cannot find anything that speaks to what happens for sure when you have different bandwidths. One of my ISP's is 50MB and the other is 100MB.

          olywrestle - Thanks for posting your question on the forum!


          When load balancing is enabled, this will allow you to have multiple default routes active in the routing table at one time. These routes are of equal cost. As far as how the traffic is split, this is determined by the 'per-packet' or 'per-destination' setting. It is not affected by the bandwidth of each link.


          More information regarding load balancing in AOS can be found in this document: Configuring IP Load Sharing in AOS - Quick Configuration Guide


          Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions. Thanks.
