Hierarchy Level


When you use round-robin allocation, one port is allocated from each address in a range before repeating the process for each address in the next range. After ports have been allocated for all addresses in the last range, the allocation process wraps around and allocates the next unused port for addresses in the first range.

Regardless of whether the round-robin method of allocation is addresses is enabled by using the address-allocation round-robin statement, round-robin allocation is enabled by default on MS-MICs and MS-MPCs.
