[All About Switches] Q&A: How Do I Configure Load Balancing in Link Aggregation?

Latest reply: May 28, 2018 15:02:05 635 1 0 0

A: In practical services, you need to configure a proper load balancing mode based on traffic characteristics. Load balancing can be classified into two categories: common load balancing and enhanced load balancing.

Common load balancing mode: Load is balanced based on IP addresses or MAC addresses of packets.

Enhanced load balancing mode: This mode can be configured for Layer 2 packets, IP packets, and MPLS packets.

Run the load-balance { dst-ip | dst-mac | src-ip | src-mac | src-dst-ip | src-dst-mac | enhanced profile profile-name } command in the Eth-Trunk view to configure the load balancing mode.


For details about load balancing configurations, see the corresponding product documentation.

Step 1: Log in to Huawei enterprise technical support website: http://support.huawei.com/enterprise.

Step 2: Select the product, for example, Switch > S5700.


Step 3: Select the corresponding product documentation from the Downloadable Product Documentation Package.


Step 4: See (Optional) Configuring a Load Balancing Mode under Configuration > CLI-based Configuration Guide > Ethernet Switching Configuration Guide > Link Aggregation Configuration > Configuring Link Aggregation in Manual Mode or Configuring Link Aggregation in LACP Mode.
