Load balancing is not working in video streaming traffic SDWAN

Hi Guys,

 

I have configured SDWAN for load balancing the video stream traffic & I am using source-ip in implicit rule for load balance in SDWAN. But as checked the utilization it was not equal on both the ISP links.

 

Kindly let me know how video/voice traffic load balance exactly in SDWAN & whether i need to select any other algorithm in implicit rule or the source-ip is fine.

It most likely won't ever be 50/50 equal unless you have thousands of sessions with minor bandwidth requirements.

If you have only a few sessions with larger bandwidth requirements (i.e. Video Streaming) then it will be harder to hit 50/50.

The load balancing algorithm does not split traffic by packet but by session (otherwise things would break).

 

Cheers,

In a video streaming environment, Traffic may not be exactly 50-50, but still it will be load balanced across the links.
