Hierarchy Level


Enable two-level equal-cost multipath next hops.

On QFX5110, QFX5120, EX4650, EX4400, and EX4100 switches, you must configure this statement for Ethernet VPN Virtual Extensible LAN (EVPN-VXLAN) overlay networks when overlay routing is configured (e.g. Overlay routing using pure Type 5 or IRB). For more information about configuring pure type-5 routes, see ip-prefix-routes. For more information on Overlay Routing using an IRB interface, see Using a Default Layer 3 Gateway to Route Traffic in an EVPN-VXLAN Overlay Network.


Configuring this statement causes the Packet Forwarding Engine to restart. Restarting the Packet Forwarding Engine interrupts all forwarding operations. Therefore, we strongly recommend using this configuration statement before the EVPN-VXLAN network becomes operational.

Required Privilege Level

interface—To view this statement in the configuration.

interface-control—To add this statement to the configuration.
