Hi!


I'm having a problem with an S5720-LI load-balance, it's just not functioning! I tryed every parameter but nothing changes!

Is there any bug with the software? It's version is V200R011C10SPC600


The scenario is shown below

scenario

router 192.168.0.1 is sending 600 Mbps to router 192.168.0.2, but is only passing about 320 Mbps

router 10.100.10.1 is sending 950 Mbps to router 10.100.10.2, but is only passing about 640 Mbps


the traffic is passing throught only one interface, as we can see in the output below.


<ERPS-02>di int br

PHY: Physical

*down: administratively down

#down: LBDT down

(l): loopback

(s): spoofing

(b): BFD down

(e): ETHOAM down

(dl): DLDP down

(lb): LBDT block

InUti/OutUti: input utility/output utility

Interface                   PHY   Protocol  InUti OutUti   inErrors  outErrors

Eth-Trunk101                up    up           0% 49.99%          0          0

  GigabitEthernet0/0/1      up    up           0% 99.99%          0          0

  GigabitEthernet0/0/3      up    up           0%     0%          0          0



The Eth Trunk configuration: (other switch is similar)

interface Eth-Trunk101

 description SW1<>SW2

 port link-type trunk

 undo port trunk allow-pass vlan 1

 port trunk allow-pass vlan 2000 3000

 stp disable

I appreciate any help! It's very important for us!

@l2vc Hi,
please check the hash algorithm, based on information you provided, all the traffic had been hashed to the same link, which caused the output bandwidth usage reaches 100%.
you can try to modify the load balance mode to enhanced profile, and add more parameters in the enhanced profile to adjust the traffic hash.
to adjust the load balance mode, please refer to http://support.huawei.com/hedex/hdx.do?docid=EDOC1000177841&id=load-balance&text=load-balance&lang=en

The switch supports only Per-Flow hash. You are advised to adjust hash factors by referring to the guide. If an enhanced profile is configured to adjust hash factors, only one member port can be used, indicating that the traffic characteristics are simple. You need to capture packets.

Try this:

system-view
The system view is displayed.

Run interface eth-trunk trunk-id
The Eth-Trunk interface view is displayed.

Run load-balance { dst-ip | dst-mac | src-ip | src-mac | src-dst-ip | src-dst-mac }
A load balancing mode of the Eth-Trunk is set.

By default, the load balancing mode is src-dst-ip.

Other load balancing modes are as follows:

dst-ip: based on destination IP addresses
dst-mac: based on destination MAC addresses
src-ip: based on source IP addresses
src-mac: based on source MAC addresses
src-dst-ip: based on the Exclusive-Or result of source and destination IP addresses
src-dst-mac: based on the Exclusive-Or result of source and destination MAC addresses

IF the Traffic is unevenly load balanced among Eth-Trunk member interfaces due to the incorrect load balancing mode.

Please do the following :
- Run the display eth-trunk command to check whether the load balancing mode of the Eth-Trunk meets networking requirements. For example, source or destination IP address-based load balancing is not recommended in Layer 2 networking.

- Run the load-balance command to set an appropriate load balancing mode.

I tried every parameter, dst-ip, dst-mac, src-ip, src-mac, src-dst-ip and src-dst-mac, but the only thing that change is the Eth-Trunk port where the traffic is passing.

There's no load balance enhanced profile in this version, should i update it with a patch?

Hi,
it seems that the S5720-LI doesn't support load-balance-profile, please check this https://support.huawei.com/hedex/hdx.do?docid=EDOC1000177841&id=load-balance-profile&text=load-balance-profile&lang=en

we have to load balance the traffic in other way. which type of the traffic between the two switches? Are the traffic layer 2 traffic, layer 3 traffic or other types?
