BGP Multipath Load-balancing

BGP Multipath load balancing needs to be configured manually where other protocols works that automatically.

Also routes should be some matching criteria include weight, local preference, AS path, origin code, MED, and IGP metric .

Here is the command

Router(config)#router bgp <As no> 
Router(config-router)#maximum-paths <no>

verify new routing table by sh ip route command

If there is difference in AS-numbers, apply below command as well.

Router(config)#bgp bestpath as-path multipath-relax
