Load balancing strategy

Load balancing strategy

The maximize bandwidth (load-balance) strategy used prior to FortiOS 7.4.1 is now known as the load balancing strategy. This strategy can be configured under the manual mode and the lowest cost (SLA) strategies.

Note

The load balancing strategy functionality remains the same as the maximum bandwidth (SLA) strategy when it is configured inside the lowest cost (SLA) strategy: load balance traffic out of all the interfaces that satisfy the SLA targets. Interface cost is not considered when selecting the best path when the load balancing strategy is used.
