ECMP Support in Service Chain
Equal-cost multipath (ECMP) can be used to distribute traffic across VMs.
Service Chain with Equal-Cost Multipath in Active-Active Mode
To support ECMP in the service chain, create multiple port tuples
within the same service instance. The labels should be the same for
the VM ports in each port tuple. For example, if port tuple 1 uses
right, then port tuple 2 in the same service instance should also use
right for its ports.
When there are multiple port tuples, the default mode of operation
Service Chain with Health Check
Service chain Version 2 also allows service instance health check configuration on a per interface label. This is used to monitor the health of the service.
