Sessions are load balanced or distributed by the NP7 processors based on the load balancing method set by the following command:

config load-balance setting

set dp-load-distribution-method {to-master | src-ip | dst-ip | src-dst-ip | src-ip-sport | dst-ip-dport | src-dst-ip-sport-dport}

end

The default load balancing method, src-dst-ip, distributes sessions across all FPMs according to their source and destination IP address. The source and destination address is used to determine where to send new sessions and where to send additional packets that are part of an already established session. This method is normally the optimal load balancing method for most traffic types.

For information about the other load balancing methods, see config load-balance setting.
