Log on once more, now we start getting to certain commands and load balancing commands that we can use. Now, these are methods when you're doing ether channel that you can like I said you can apply to it Oh, I mean like a switch here that you will do you know I think config slash all things like that. All right, you can do a method value of source IP destination IP or source and destination IP. Same thing with a Mac source MAC destination MAC source and destination MAC or the port numbers you can do it by IP by MAC or by port number, where you can go high and then and look for it. Now pretty much all models will support these types of methods except for the source and destination port, source and destination port, which only these series of switches will support that, okay, but he has an awful lot more of or low bouncing, but to keep track of The traffic right now as far as load balancing for general balance, and then a method a method.

All right, when you're doing load balancing, how am I gonna send that out? Okay, so port channel load balance and a method you're going to use. You can use show commands, you can take a look and verify there's low balancing, you'll pretty much show either channel a low balance or show either channel, poor channel, and you can take a look and see what type of method is using. It is a low balancing and what have you. Okay? And the reason I'm showing you here because the packet tracer doesn't do any low bouncing stuff anyway.

Now we know the modes when we're creating ether channel, we know the ones right, okay? We know there's active and passive we know there's total undesirable What does this vi mean? The active and the passive means that there any vendor or go across vendors, all right auto and desirable or system Hold on, you're still doing either channel. There's no real going back and forth between any protocols here. Okay, either challenges on, okay? Here we like p active, you do it on one side, it's unconditional Hey, I'm using lock P and that is it.

I am losing the Link Control aggregation protocol. This is what I'm using. So then you do on the other side, if you're using this, your passive, say, Well, if I see like p frames out, I'll use like feature. And the same thing goes with our desirable if you use desirable and then we'll pipe it unconditionally. I'm using port aggregation and protocol. And that's it.

So then, on the other side, you use out almost as well. If I detect pag p, then I'll use piping Okay. And then it says your molds must match on both sides. You can't have Paki on one side. You can't have like pee on the other. It's gotta be one or the other.

Okay, no big knowing. But we know this comes from the CCNA. Seriously. All right here will be how you will configure very simple very basic doubt that you're going to be configuring either channel, nowt it completely interface, port, channel, one, switch port, more trunk switch for more drunk, switch port non negotiate. And one of the things you'll see in the lab that I turn off the ports that I'm using, so no information gets sent back and forth. So they're all off, configure everything, then bring them back up, okay?

And then things will start working and then you create a channel group, or whatever is going to be this one desirable. Remember, in one desirable means unconditionally, the other side is going to be out all is going to be auto, okay, so that's the same actual configuration there. Now, your show command. Again, show either Channel show you the channel one mole balance, okay? You're gonna log free or low balance with frame distribution. You can look at the scheme of the ports or the port channel.

You can make a just a port channel port channel information, you know the summary of many things, question mark, question mark, question mark at this level. All right. Hey, I want to see this. What can I do show either Channel show ether channel, question mark, and take a look. So I'm ready to take a look at the summary the whole thing, you can see everything that you need to actually look at it. Okay, you can go line by line type of thing to look to see what's going on.

But again, the methods that we were looking at the beginning definitely know this. You have to know for the CCNA and these methods, I mean, okay, just keep this in mind. It's a source of destination. You can use the IP, the Mac, or the port, okay, source, source IP source MAC, source port, destination MAC destination IP destination port or source and destination IP source and destination MAC source and destination port, the only one that has a little whatever, there's this last one source and destination port that only the 40 560 hundred series switches can use. So this is all it is, this is just what this is telling you what this is. That's it.

Okay? No big kid, this little table in mind, kid, this little tip of mine. And remember, this table is used for the low balancing, poor channel low balance and then a method and then a method. Okay, that's what they mean by the method. You can do it based on IP based on Mac. So it all depends.

It all depends. Okay. Well that's it. That's all it really is. He wants to show you this once again. All right, so you don't forget all this will be made available to no big deal.

Okay, and then the show commands to verify that either channel and load balancing is working properly and is working out. All right. See you the next
