it defines balancing

vif create [ single | multi ] vif_name [ -b {rr|mac|ip} ] [ interface_list


IP based . The outgoing interface is selected on the basis of the filer and client's IP address

-
MAC based . The outgoing interface is selected on the basis of the filer and client's MAC address

-
Round-Robin . All the interfaces are selected on a round-robin basis
