Weighted Load balance and failover considering packet loss
Recently a Fortinet engineer told me that performance SLA are not considered if there are not explicit rule including them, so I wonder how to create a Load balance, using both WANs in the SD-WAN, taking care about the bandwith of each wan.
For example, I have the following:
WAN1: 100 Mbps / 100 Mbps of bandwith
WAN2: 50 Mbps / 50 Mbps of bandwith
In this case I would like to have about the double amount of sessions in WAN1 than in WAN2, and also I would like that if some link has about 3% of packet loss or more, this link will not be used.
The first link explain how to load balance the traffic to a specific IP, skipping sdwan rules
The second link explain how to create a link health monitor
As I understand (IMHO), this is not related to my question.
When more articles I read about sdwan, more I think the Fortinet engineer was wrong, I think the performance SLA should work even if there is not explicit rules selecting them.
Also, the fortinet engineer told me that when there are many performance SLA in a explicit rule, just one of them are used (different from what the second link explain), I think he was wrong in many answers.
So, before my previous question, let me ask you another question:
Are performance SLA considered if there is no explicit sdwan rules? (Just the implicit rule)
