Option: Optimizing VPLS Traffic Flows

To improve the performance of VPLS traffic processing in your routing platform, you can implement the following features:

  • To optimize VPLS traffic flows across multiple paths, you can enable per-packet load balancing. To enable per-packet load balancing, include the load-balance per-packet statement at the [edit policy-options policy-statement policy-name term term-name then] hierarchy level and apply the policy to the forwarding table with the export policy-name statement at the [edit routing-options forwarding-table] hierarchy level.

  • To optimize hashing of source and destination MAC addresses within VPLS traffic flows, include the source-mac and destination-mac statements at the [edit forwarding-options hash-key family multiservice] hierarchy level.

For more information about load balancing and hash keys, see the Junos Policy Framework Configuration Guide.
