    @nassman:

    2- Load balance between 3 WANs.
       set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 1 tier 1 tier 1 , is correct or not?.

    Yes. If you just want load balancing, that's really all you need. You don't need additional groups or anything else.

    @nassman:

    3- if Wan 1 fail, preferred load balance between Wan 2 and Wan 3.
       set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 1 tier 2 tier 2 , is correct or not?.

    Yes. That will only use WAN1, but if it fails, it will fail to balancing 2+3.

    @nassman:

    4- if Wan 2 fail, preferred load balance between Wan 1 and Wan 3.
       set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 2 tier 1 tier 2 , is correct or not?.

    Yes.

    @nassman:

    5- if Wan 3 fail, preferred load balance between Wan 1 and Wan 2.
       set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 2 tier 2 tier 1 , is correct or not?.

    Yes.

    @nassman:

    6- if wan 1 and wan 2 fail, preferred wan 3
       set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 1 tier 1 tier 2 , is correct or not?

    That would balance 1 and 2 and if they both fail, go to 3.

    @nassman:

    7- if wan 2 and wan 3 fail, preferred wan 1
      set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 2 tier 1 tier 1 , is correct or not?

    Yes, see 6.

    @nassman:

    8- if wan 3 and wan 1 fail, preferred wan 2
      set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 1 tier 2 tier 1 , is correct or not?

    Yes, see 6.

    @nassman:

    about points 9, i not sure about it, is need or not,
    9- set===>Wan 1 + 2 +3 on tier 1 tier 2 tier 3 , is correct or not?

    That would prefer only wan1, if it fails, use 2. If 1 and 2 are both down, use 3.

    You can make it that complex if you want, but if you really just want load balancing, you just need one group with 1, 2, 3 all in tier 1.

    The rest only needs to be as complex as you want to make it.



  • thank you jimp,

    You can make it that complex if you want, but if you really just want load balancing, you just need one group with 1, 2, 3 all in tier 1.

    The rest only needs to be as complex as you want to make it.

    if i use one group with 1, 2, 3 all in tier 1, if any WAN fail, will others WANs work with out i add any other groups.
    thanks

    That's correct. If one fails it will just balance the other two. If two fail it will use whichever one is left over.



  • thank you very much.
