Whether the S-series switches support non-equivalent load balancing

41

S series switch load sharing is generally equivalent load sharing, can not achieve non-equivalent load sharing. If you want non-equivalent load balancing, you can only force certain data streams to go through the specified next hop by policy routing.

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.

How to configure load balancing for the Eth-Trunk on S series switches
S series switches (except the S1700) use a per-flow load balancing mechanism, which ensures that frames of the same data flow are forwarded on the same physical link, and different data flows are forwarded on different physical links. You can configure common load balancing mode to implement load balancing based on IP addresses or MAC addresses of packets. For L2, IP, and MPLS packets, you can also configure enhanced load balancing mode. Load balancing takes effect only for the outbound traffic. Therefore, load balancing modes can be different on the two ends of a link. 1. Commands for configuring common load balancing mode: [HUAWEI] interface Eth-Trunk 1 [HUAWEI-Eth-Trunk1] load-balance dst-mac 2. Commands for configuring enhanced load balancing mode: [HUAWEI] load-balance-profile a [HUAWEI-load-balance-profile-a] l2 field smac [HUAWEI-load-balance-profile-a] quit [HUAWEI] interface Eth-Trunk 1 [HUAWEI-Eth-Trunk1] load-balance enhanced profile a For configuration cases about common load balancing mode, see "Typical Ethernet Switching Configuration -Link Aggregation Configuration- Example for Configuring Link Aggregation in Manual Mode When Switches Are Directly Connected" in S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700&S7700&S9700 Typical Configuration Examples. The configuration cases of common load balancing are applicable to all S series switch models. The Sx700 series switch is used here as an example.

Do S series switches support ratio-based load balancing
S series switches (except the S1700) support per-flow load balancing but do not support ratio-based load balancing.
