Configuring Load Balancing for Ethernet Pseudowires

 

You can configure load balancing for IPv4 traffic over Layer 2 Ethernet pseudowires. You can also configure load balancing for Ethernet pseudowires based on IP information. The option to include IP information in the hash key provides support for Ethernet circuit cross-connect (CCC) connections.

Note

This feature is supported only on M120, M320, MX Series, and T Series routers.

To configure load balancing for IPv4 traffic over Layer 2 Ethernet pseudowires, include the ether-pseudowire statement at the [edit forwarding-options hash-key family mpls payload] hierarchy level:

Note

You must also configure either the label-1 or the no-labels statement at the [edit forwarding-options hash-key family mpls] hierarchy level.
