Layer3 load balance

I have two 5400 Switches they are connected through two physical links. I am going to run Routing Load Balance over these two link for redundancy and performance.

 

In Cisco, IP cef support for runing two static IP route with similar Admin Destance. Is there anything similar solution on HP switches?

Please advise the best solution.

 

Best regards.

Re: Layer3 load balance

You can use equal cost multi-path (ECMP) to accomplish this.

You can configure two different gateways to the same destination addressbut through different next-hop routers:

switch(config)# ip route 127.10.144.21/24 10.10.10.2 metric 12 distance 10switch(config)# ip route 127.10.144.21/24 10.10.10.3 metric 12 distance 10

 

ECMP routing allows multiple entries for routes to the same destination. Each path has the same cost as the other paths, but a different next-hop router. The ip load-sharing command specifies the maximum number of ofequal paths that can be configured. Values range from 2 to 4

 

Check page # 164 of the following guide:
