Summary[edit | edit source]

Load balancing lets users create rules that divide traffic between different interfaces. This chapter is an Overview of the Load Balancing function in RUT routers.

Policies[edit | edit source]

The Policies section contains Load Balancing rules. One default rule named Balanced is already in place. You can edit this default rule or create a new custom rule.

As you can see from the image above, the configuration is very simple. You can assign ratio values to WAN interfaces. The ratio values represent a percentage of load that will go through an interface. For example, in the default configuration 3 parts of traffic will go through the Mobile interface and 2 parts will go through the Wired interface, which means roughly 60% (3/5) of data will be transferred through Mobile, 40% (2/5) through Wired. If the ratios would be different, say Mobile: 5, Wired: 10, then 33% (5/15) of data would be transferred through Mobile, and 66% (10/15) would go through Wired.
