Command:

traffic-share

Mode:

Router(config-router)#


Syntax:

traffic-share {balanced | min}

no traffic share {balanced | min}


Syntax Description:

balanced

Distributes traffic proportionately to the ratios of the metrics

min

Uses routes that have minimum costs

 


Command Description:

When there are multiple routes for the same destination network that have different costs, use the traffic-share router configuration command. This command will control how traffic is distributed among the routes. To disable this function, use the no form of the command.

Usage Guidelines:

This command applies to IGRP and EIGRP routing protocols only. With the default setting, routes that have higher metrics represent less-preferable routes and get less traffic. Configuring traffic-share min causes the Cisco IOS software to divide traffic only among the routes with the best metric. Other routes will remain in the routing table, but will receive no traffic.


Example:

In the following example, only routes of minimum cost will be used: 

 

Router(config)#router igrp 5 

Router(config-router)#traffic-share min
