Unequal Cost Load Balancing

By default on Cisco devices, routing protocols will only install the route into the routing table with the lowest metric.

There is a feature within EIGRP that allows multiple routes to be installed with different metric values. This will allow for unequal cost load balancing across multiple paths. Traffic will be transmitted out over the multiple links based on a ratio to the metric associated with each interface.
