Load Balancing Pools + BGP ?

  • How does load balancing work with BGP in terms of route/gateway selection?  ..Does load balancing pools assume that all gateways are equal in terms of reachability of the internet?  ..In other words which comes first route tables then load balance or the other way around?

  • My understanding is that each connection is treated as equal, and are load balanced in a round robin fashion.  I've seen this repeated a few times in different places and my (little) experience seems to suggest that it is true.

    That being said, if there is a way to set priorities of different connections, that would be very useful
