Load Sharing Guidelines
For ExtremeXOS standalone switches and SummitStacks the following rules
apply to load sharing.
- A static LAG can contain up to eight
- An LACP LAG can contain twice the number of ports as a static LAG. The
maximum number of selected links is the same as the limit for a static LAG. The
remaining links are standby links.
- A Health Check LAG can contain the same number of ports as a static
- You can configure only the address-based load-sharing algorithm as
described in the following sections:
- The maximum number of LAGs for ExtremeSwitching series switches is 128.
See Configuring LACP
for the maximum number of links, selected and standby, per LACP.
Guidelines for the
For the ExtremeSwitching
X450-G2, X460-G2, X590, X465,
X695 series switches, the following rules apply to load sharing.
- A static LAG can contain up
to 32 ports when configured to use the L2,L3,L3_L4 or custom algorithm.
- For all the algorithms, LACP
LAG can contain up to 64 ports per LAG, which includes up to 32 selected
links and 32 standby links.
- A SummitStack
consisting entirely of X450-G2, X460-G2, X590, and X465 switches can contain
up to 64 ports for all algorithms. All platforms have the same stacking
