We have 2 routers R1 and R2 with 4 links between them, we want to use BGP for exchanging routes between the two routers. We would like to establish a single BGP session between the 2 routers and not configure multiple BGP sessions using the physical IP addresses on the 2 links connecting the 2 routers.
lo — R1 === R2 — lo
We are hoping to use eBGP multi-hop feature. We have a requirement to load balance the traffic to the prefixes behind R1 using different weights that are assigned to the links.
router bgp 1
Since the recursive next hop is resolved via static route, there is no notion of load-balancing with un-equal weights. Is there a way to do UCMP with eBGP multi-hop for the example outlined above?
