Does VRRP support per-packet load sharing on an AR router?
VRRP shares loads based on IP addresses. Therefore, it does not support per-packet load sharing.
In VRRP load sharing, multiple VRRP groups bear services, and each VRRP group contains a master device and multiple backup devices. The basic principle and packet negotiation procedure of VRRP load sharing are the same as those of VRRP active/standby backup. Unlike VRRP active/standby backup, multiple VRRP groups must be created to share load, the master devices of the groups can be different, and a VRRP device can be added into multiple groups and have different priorities in the groups.
