CARP and Load Balancing hallucination?



  • ISP1 ISP2
      |        |
      |        |
    PF1  PF2
      |        |
        LAN

    It seems to work . I have one LAN Virtual interface.  DHCP gateway is the Virtual LAN interface.
    No WAN virtual interface is configured.

    Load Balancing is checked in CARP Setting.
    Premption is checked in CARP Setting.

    Does it really work (load balancing), or it's just an hallucination of my part?
    Is the traffic only forwarded to the MASTER PF1 ? … BACKUP PF2 will only be used if PF1 die?

    Thank you very much!



  • Doesn't work. If I unplug ISP1 and PF1 is the master, internet stop working.
    I tought it will switch automaticly to PF2 … but it doesn't. Am I doing something impossible?

    Outgoing load balancing monitoring is not complete yet.



  • ok thanks.

    I did find an answer for my first question. Can CARP do load balancing in my setup?

    You can do ARP balancing but I am not sure how well it works (never tested).
