Is this command disruptive or just a logical exercise of existing configuration?

test etherchannel load-balance int po3 <some mac here>

Platform is 6500 series, running IOS. Thank you!


Not so far as I am aware. All it does is simulate sending data and seeing which interface would actually be carrying the packets.

Granted this is to the best of my knowledge and I might be incorrect.

  • Thanks for the feedback Zack, I need to make sure it's non-impactful before I can execute though so I'll leave this open for now. – A L Sep 8 '16 at 14:26

    @AL, the command only runs the hash algorithm to see which member interface would be used for traffic. – Ron Maupin Sep 8 '16 at 14:26
