Configuring load-balancing equivalent routes for USG firewalls

The load-balancing equivalent routes for USG firewalls are configured as follows:
Configure load balancing of equivalent routes on the web UI as follows:
1. Choose Route > Static > Equivalent Route.
Configure the source IP address, destination IP address, source port, and destination port for the load-balancing equipment route.
2. Calculate a value based on the source IP address, destination IP address, and port number. Packets with the same value are forwarded over the same link.
3. Click Apply.

Configure load balancing of equivalent routes in CLI mode as follows:
1. Configure the per-flow load balancing.
a. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
b. Run the load-balance flow hash { destination-ip | destination-port | source-ip | source-port } * command to configure the link according to the Hash algorithm.
c. Run the interface interface-type interface-number command to enter the interface view.
d. Run the route weight weight-value command to configure the load-balancing weight. The larger the load-balancing weight of the interface, the large the traffic borne by the interface. The default value is 1.
e. Run the quit command to return to the system view.

2. Configure the per-packet load balancing (Note: Generally, this mode is not used by firewalls).
a. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
b. Run the load-balance packet command to configure per-packet load balancing to forward IP packets.
c. Run the interface interface-type interface-number command to enter the interface view.
d. Run the route weight weight-value command to configure the load-balancing weight. The larger the load-balancing weight of the interface, the large the traffic borne by the interface. The default value is 1.
e. Run the quit command to return to the system view.
