Packet loss when i ping from the Host machine.

Hi All

 Pls someone give the solution.

I have cisco 7505 series router & have 2 E1 lines running BGP & OSPF with load balancing Enabled.
When i ping the destination IP address from any of the serial interfaces i don't get any packet loss.but if i ping from the Host machine in the LAN ,i am getting Packet loss.This is happening only after commissing the new link.But we tested the new link end to end with the tester ,there is no error.
Even LAN is also not having any problem.

Can some one suggest the solution? is there anything related to Compression.Interface config is as follows.


interface FastEthernet2/0/0
 ip address <Network ID> <Mask>
 no ip unreachables
 no ip directed-broadcast
 no ip proxy-arp
 no ip route-cache distributed
 ip ospf cost 100
 speed auto
 full-duplex
!



interface Serial0/1/0
 bandwidth 1984
 ip address <network id> <Mask>
 no ip directed-broadcast
 no ip proxy-arp
 ip load-sharing per-packet
 ip route-cache flow
 no ip route-cache distributed
 ip ospf cost 7810
 no ip mroute-cache
 keepalive 20
 compress stac

interface Serial0/1/3
 bandwidth 1984
 ip address <Netwrk ID> <Mask>
 no ip directed-broadcast
 no ip proxy-arp
 ip load-sharing per-packet
 ip route-cache flow
 no ip route-cache distributed
 ip ospf cost 7810
 no ip mroute-cache
 keepalive 20
 compress stac

You may have a conflict between these two commands on your interface.

>ip load-sharing per-packet
>ip route-cache flow

The per-packet load sharing is almost a direct oposite of the route-cache flow which tries to minimze packet processing and just open up the flow in a connection-oriented session. You might want to try load-sharing per-destination vs per-packet

I agree with lrmoore, those two conflicting commands might be causing problems.

Unless you really need the granularity of per-packet load balancing, per-destination is usually considered the way to go.

Hi,

This might be silly but how does the Switchport look for that LAN device?  Any Runts or CRC?  I agree Irmoore as well but I think it might not be a problem of the router, but rather the Host.

No CRC or Runts on the routers interface .

if i configure for per destination load balancing,if the link fluctuates in the middle then the router 'll show destination unreachble.instead in per-packet load balancing it'll route the packets through other link.
so which one is advicable ,so that users should not face problem when link fluctuates.

That's sort of a "it depends" answer. It depends on what type of connections you have. It depends on what is upstream from this router. Is this a point-to-point applicatin where you own/control both sides? How often do these circuits flap? If they flap consistently, get the telco to clean it up.
Basic web browsing is not really connection-oriented and should work fine either way. Database replication or large file downloads are connection-oriented and benefit from the per-connection option.
Normal TCP/IP communications includes a re-send, so regardless of the circuit flap, even with per-destination load sharing, the data packets will still find their way.

My suggestion is to keep the route-cache flow command and change to per-destination vs per-packet.

If a link goes down, the router will not keep the route in the route table.  If you are getting destination unreachables, you probably have a buggy piece of code in your router because the destination isn't unreachable.
