I’ve configured a port channel and an ACL to filter for BGP traffic. Et1-12 are the input ports, Et52/1-4 (40G port, split into 4x10G) are the output ports, where the port channel and ACL are applied on. My configuration is as follows.
The ACL is working since I’m getting only bgp traffic from the output ports.
Initially when I only applied the port channel to Et52/3 and Et52/4, I have the following output.
Then I added Et52/1 and Et52/2 to the port channel, and I get approximately the same In/Out rates as Et52/3 for both ports. Output of Et52/4 remains he same. I thought the port channel would try to load balance across the 4 ports. There is approximately 24Gbps of traffic from the 12 input ports. Did the total In rate increase because there was simply too much incoming traffic from the 12 ports (Et1-12)? If so, why is each In rate only about 100Mbps and not higher?
Thanks in advance.
