When an appliance receives a Subnet with the same Metric from multiple remote/peer appliances, it uses the Peer Priority list as a tie-breaker.

  • If a Peer Priority is not configured, the appliance randomly distributes flows among multiple peers.

  • The lower the number, the higher the peer’s priority.

Click the edit icon to configure a peer and its peer priority.


NOTE: By default, the peer priority range starts at 1.

Peer Priority Edit Row

This dialog box displays a list of configured peers. The peer priority and advertise metric are displayed for each peer.

  • Peer priority controls the peer to which traffic is sent when route ties occur. It acts similar to BGP’s local preference.

  • Advertise metric controls the return path of a flow back toward the local appliance. It adjusts the metric of all routes sent to Peer Name. Advertise metric announces different metrics to different fabric peers. It acts similar to BGP’s Multi Exit Discriminator (MED). The default setting is preserve existing (do nothing).

Both peer priority and advertise metric impact all routes sent and received from Peer Name.

To add a peer:

  1. Click Add Peer.

  2. In the new row that is added to the table, enter the peer name, peer priority, and advertise metric.

  3. To delete a peer, click the X in the far-right column of the peer’s row.

  4. When finished, click Apply.
