[alcatel-nsp] does it will have a problem for Link aggregation withdifferent delay

Hello Andhy,
It wont affect traffic in so much as it won't break TCP or UDP traffic
as we do flow based load balancing (depending on the criteria you
choose) so, a single traffic stream will always follow the same member
of the LAG and experience latency behaviour consistent with the member

What you may see, are flows that experience different end to end latency
depending on which member link they were hashed onto.

Best regards,

Dear all,

I have two gigabit link from 7750 SR-A to 7750 SR-B but the link have
different delay.
The first link has end to end delay of 50 ms and second link have end to
end delay 100 ms.

If I want to bundle those 2 link and become 1 link aggregation, Does it
will run smoothly or does it will have a problem in the future because
of the difference end to end delay ?

Please inform me if you have any information or website reference regard
of this matter.

Thank you before.

Best regards,

andhi indarto
