How to configure load balancing on an AC

2

Load balancing can evenly distribute AP traffic loads to ensure high bandwidth for each STA. The load balancing function applies to wireless networks with high user densities to ensure proper access of STAs.

Depending on whether a load balancing group needs to be manually created, load balancing is classified into static and dynamic load balancing. For detailed principle description and configuration, see:

The functions and meanings of load balancing are described as follows: When multiple routes have the same routing protocol preference and metric, these routes are called equal-cost routes, among which load balancing can be implemented. Routers support the multi-route mode, allowing you to configure multiple routes with the same destination and preference. If the destinations and costs of multiple routes discovered by the same routing protocol are the same, load balancing can be performed among the routes. Run the maximum load-balancing number command in the views of various protocols to implement load balancing. Load balancing falls into the following two modes: -Packet-by-packet When the packet-by-packet load balancing is configured, firewalls at the network layer forward packets to the same destination through various equal-cost paths. That is, switches always choose the next hop address that is different from the last one to send packets. -Session-by-session When session-by-session load balancing is configured, firewalls forward packets according to the source address, destination address, source port, destination port, and protocol contained in the packets. When the five factors are the same, firewalls always choose the same next hop address as the last one used to send the packets.

How to configure load balancing in a link aggregation group
Run the load-balance { dst-ip | dst-mac | src-ip | src-mac | src-dst-ip | src-dst-mac } command in the Eth-Trunk view. The default load balancing mode of the S3700HI, S5700HI, S5706, and S6700 is src-dst-ip; the default load balancing mode of other switches is src-dst-mac.

Methods used to implement virtual load balancing
Currently, virtual and physical SVN load balancing can be implemented. vLB is used to balance the load of multiple WIs. Physical LB balances the load of WIs to prevent a large number of users from accessing the same WI.
