Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 14.1.

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 17.2R1 for QFX10000 Series switches.

Description

Assists the transit router in load-balancing MPLS traffic across ECMP paths or Link Aggregation groups by introducing the entropy label to the MPLS label stack. The entropy label allows routers to load balance MPLS traffic by using a hash-input without the need to perform deep packet inspection. Deep packet inspection requires more of the router’s processing power and is not a capability shared by all routers.
