rebalance-subscriber-granularity (PS interface)


Hierarchy Level


Rebalancing takes place when the member links have more subscribers than the configured value on the rebalance-subscriber-granularity option. Changing the value to a value less than the current active value does not force IFLs to be reassigned to a different pseudo IFL.

Best Practice:

We recommend that you do not configure a low granularity value. A low value can have undesirable effects, such as the router running out of pseudo logical interfaces or an increase in the convergence time for rebalancing.

Leaving subscriber granularity at the default value of 500 subscribers is sufficient in most cases. Whenever more than one member link is active, targeted distribution places new subscribers on a link with fewer subscribers than other member links on the interface.


The default subscriber granularity value is 500 subscribers.
