SummitStack Link Aggregation Algorithms

The following are the types of traffic to which addressed-based algorithms apply and the traffic components used to select egress links:
  • IPv4 and IPv6 packets—Load sharing is based on the configured options supported on each platform:
    • L2 algorithm—Layer 2 source and destination MAC addresses. Available on SummitStack and all Summit family switches.

    • L3 algorithm—Layer 3 source and destination IP addresses. Available on Summit family switches and SummitStack.

    • L3_L4 algorithm—Layer 3 and Layer 4, the combined source and destination IP addresses and source and destination TCP and UDP port numbers. Available on Summit family switches.

  • Non-IP traffic—The source and destination MAC addresses.

You can control the field examined by the switch for address-based load sharing when the load-sharing group is created by using the following command:

enable sharing port grouping port_list {algorithm [address-based {L2 | L3 | L3_L4 | custom} | port-based }]} {lacp | health-check}
