How to Test GLBP Load-Balancing

I am trying to Test GLBP Load balancing (The default Round Robin), I ran Traceroute from R4 and R5 to R1(20.20.20.1) , but cannot tell if there is any Load-balancing since the Output is the same.

Thanks

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Look at the ARP cache of the hosts for the default gateway entry. If load balancing is properly configured and working, the two hosts should have different MAC addresses.

jskfanAuthor Commented:
Apparently the MAC addresses of the Default gateway are the same:

R4#show arp
Protocol  Address          Age (min)  Hardware Addr   Type   Interface
Internet  10.10.10.4              -   ca03.216c.0008  ARPA   GigabitEthernet0/0
Internet  10.10.10.100            0   0007.b400.0101  ARPA   GigabitEthernet0/0

R5#sh arp

I thought GLBP uses Round Robin Load balancing by default ..

I have just configured Load balancing manually to be Round Robin
show arp still shows the same MAC address for the default gateway on both R4 and R5

Sorry....
I noticed even after I configured on R2 and R3  Load- balancing , the command does not show up in the :Show Running Configuration, maybe because is the default:
(config)#interface gigabitEthernet 0/0
(config-if)#glbp 1 load-balancing round-robin

Correct..

But I am not sure if Traceroute uses Round Robin... I am trying Traceroute to R1 from R4 and R5 but they seem to be both using R2 then R3 to get to R1....
AS you said in the previous topic that 's the behavior of Traceroute...
But what tool should I use to confirm that there is Round Robin Load balancing ?

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
config looks OK
and in show glbp you have

Please post the config of R4 & R5.  Something's not right here.

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
Traceroute don't use Round Robin. Traceroute is just sent, and whereever it goes - it  just sends message back.

The only strange thing that I notice here is:
R3#sh glbp
GigabitEthernet0/0 - Group 1
  State is Standby
    33 state changes, last state change 00:45:58

R2#sh glbp
GigabitEthernet0/0 - Group 1
  State is Active
    2 state changes, last state change 08:44:37

Somehow I expect to see similar number of state changes on both routers. And that time from last state change is the same.

What cisco image you use in GNS3?

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Nope. Doesn't make sense. Your traceroute output is totally wrong.  It's showing the packet going to R2. Which then forwards it to R3. Who then sends it to 20.20.20.1

Forget GLBP, there's something else going on. I'm thinking R2's link is down...

That's it. The G1/0 interface on R2 is still shutdown.

Hi Don and Petrag,

I am not sure if you saw my last comment...
I am still trying to find out why Traceroute from R4 and R5 is not using R3
0
 
Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
Round Robin load balancing is enabled.  There's no question about that.

The two hosts (R4 & R5) have their default-gateway set to the GLBP virtual IP.

Yet for some reason, AVG is not alternating the AVF MAC address.

It could be just GNS weirdness.

The only other thing that I can think to try is to reload all the devices. Maybe there's some vestige of something in a cache or buffer or something.

Round Robin Load Balancing to R1 is not obvious, May be it is supposed to work just for the Virtual IP address of GLBP.

The results of what you're seeing when sending to R1 is consistent with a router that has two equal cost paths (ECMP).

What does the routing table of R4 look like after pinging R1?

There's your problem.  You've got two RIP routes to the 20.0.0.0 network.

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
You turned on ip routing on R4 and R5 again?
:)
My sugestion

Turn off RIP on all routers.
Create GLBP on routers R2 and R3 for both networks 10.10.10.0/24 and 20.20.20.0/24.
Turn off ip routing on R4, R5 and R1. Give them default gateway IP address of Virtual IP address of GLBP  for their network.
0
 
jskfanAuthor Commented:
If I turn off RIP, I cannot ping from R4 or R5 to R1. So I left RIP on R1,R2,R3.
I have created GLBP group 2 for Network 20.20.20.0

 Now Round Robin Load Balancing works fine, it just depends on the Clear Arp-cache .
Sometimes Traceroute goes through the same router for several tries before it changes to anther router...

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
If you're running RIP on the hosts, GLBP is totally unnecessary.  It's also not very realistic since hosts typically don't run routing protocols.

jskfanAuthor Commented:
I turned off RIP on all Routers. Now from R4 and R5 I can ping GLBP virtual IP addresses for group 1(10.10.10.100) and Group 2(20.20.20.100), but cannot ping R1 ip address(20.20.20.1).
 Do not you think I need Routing Protocol since R4 and R5 are in 10.10.10.0 network while R1 is in 20.20.20.0 Network ?

If you're trying to emulate a real network with R4 and R5 acting as computers, running RIP (or any routing protocol) is not realistic.

Create a static, default route on R4 and R5 pointing to the GLBP virtual IP

ip default-gateway  10.10.10.100  on R4 R5
ip default-gateway  20.20.20.100  on R1

if 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.100 is used I not sure it will work  if you have no ip routing issued

Go to R1 and issue debug ip icmp
Then ping from R4 and R5
ping 20.20.20.1

if ping is coming to 20.20.20.1 (you'll see debuging messages) then problem is that R1 don't know way back to 10.10.10.x and to go back R1 either need default gateway or default route to 10.10.10.0 network

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
A routing protocol is not necessary in this environment since there are only two networks and both routers are connected to both networks.

Just disable RIP on all routers and create a default route on R4 & R5 pointing to the GLBP virtual IP address.  On R1, create a default route and point it to either 20.20.20.2  or 20.20.20.3

There's no benefit to making this more complicated than it needs to be.

I followed your above suggestion, but still cannot ping from R4 or R5 to R1 or the other way around.
I cannot even ping from R4 or R5 to the 20.20.20.X interfaces of R2 or R3
I cannot also ping from R1 to R2 and R3 interfaces located on 10.10.10.0 network

post the output of a "show ip route" for all the routers please.

R4 & R5 need a default route or default gateway.

they do have DG.

Personally, I don't like the "ip default-gateway" command on routers. It's fine on L2 switches, but I've found it buggy on routers. I would use a default route.

jskfanAuthor Commented:
I removed DG from R4 and R5 and added Default Route
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.2
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.10.10.3

I can reach R1 now, but the Load balancing does not seem to work. the Traceroute  goes through R3

Thank you very much Guys  for your Help !!!

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
In the future, you will find this process is much easier and faster if you

A) Get the basic network functionality working.  No fancy protocols, authentication, encryption, etc.  Just build the fundamental network topology and get that working.

B) Post the actual output requested

C) If you change the configuration, tell us so we're not trying to troubleshoot a different configuration than is actually running.
