RE: OSPF unequal cost load balancing posted 05/23/2001

That would sorta defeat the purpose of shortest path first, now wouldn't it?

The RFC ( 2328 ) does specifically discuss load sharing requirements.  Paths
must be equal cost in order to be load shared.

	My understanding is that when using OSPF you can have up to 4
equal-cost paths performing load balancing.  Is it at all possible to do
unequal cost load balancing with OSPF as is possible with EIGRP?
