BGP Multipath/Load Balancing Tutorial

The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) will, by default, only use the single best path to a destination when presented with multiple paths. So how can you change BGP’s default best path selection process and force the use of multiple paths to the same Autonomous System (AS)? Simple! Just check out this 10 minute video tutorial on how to set the BGP “maximum-paths” option in your global BGP configuration section and you will be rocking and rolling over multiple links in no time! Enjoy!
