|I have installed Release 1.0.beta14 and enabled load-balancing with
4 DSL connections to the internet. It appears that round robin is not actually working:
I have a single host behind the zeroshell box that downloads large amount of data from a server over the 4 DSL lines. I download by opening multiple connections (50+) to the server simultaneously. I notice, looking at the Net Balance Statics, that all the connections go via the same internet interface and in fact the load balancing (round robin) does not work per connection as I thought it should.
To me it looks like the linux routing cache is forcing the downloads to go via the same interface.
Has anyone seen the same behavior ?
I would appreciate any feed.
