Interconnection and replacement guide for link aggregation on S series switches

13

S series switches (except the S1700) use a standard protocol for link aggregation and can interconnect with non-Huawei devices. For more information, see Interworking and Replacement Guide of Spanning Tree Protocols on Huawei Switches and Cisco Switches in S1720&S2700&S3700&S5700&S6700&S7700&S9700 Interoperation Configuration Guide.

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.

Does an S series switch support link aggregation after stacking configuration
S series switches (except the S1700) support link aggregation after stacking configuration.

Principle of link aggregation on S series switches
Ethernet link aggregation , also called Eth-Trunk, bundles multiple physical links on S series switches (except the S1700) into a logical link to increase link bandwidth. The bundled links can increase the link reliability through mutual dynamic backup. Link aggregation is also called Ethernet link aggregation, port aggregation, link bundle, port bundle, Eth-Trunk, Eth-Trunk link aggregation, and interface aggregation. For more information about how link aggregation is implemented, see Link Aggregation Configuration in S1720&S2700&S5700&S6720 V200R010C00 Configuration Guide - Ethernet Switching. Link aggregation is implemented similarly on all S series switch models. The Sx700 series switch is used here as an example.
