Hierarchy Level


Configure a hash seed for load-balancing functions.

By default, the QFX10002, QFX10008, QFX5220, QFX5130, and QFX5700 switches use the system MAC address to generate a hash seed value. You can configure the hash seed value using the hash-seed statement at the [edit forwarding-options enhanced-hash-key] hierarchy. Set a value between 0 and 4294967295. If you do not configure a hash seed value, the system will generate a hash seed value based on the system MAC address.


The fabric-load-balance and user-defined-fields statements are not supported at the [edit forwarding-options enhanced-hash-key] hierarchy level.
