Configuring IRF link load sharing mode

On an IRF port, traffic is balanced across its physical links.

You can configure the IRF port to distribute traffic based on any combination of the following criteria:

The criteria can also be packet types, such as Layer 2, IPv4, and IPv6. If the device does not support a criterion combination, the system displays an error message.

Configure the IRF link load sharing mode for IRF links in system view or IRF port view:

An IRF port preferentially uses the port-specific load sharing mode. If no port-specific load sharing mode is available, the IRF port uses the global load sharing mode.

The IRF link load sharing mode takes effect on all types of packets, including unicast, multicast, and broadcast.
