Performance Routing (based on Throughput)

Video Length: ~ 1 hour (1 video file) + Diagram and Configuration Files

In this technology video, we will show you how to configure Performance Routing (PfR) based on Throughput. Performance Routing is considered by some as the first generation of Software-Defined Networks (SDN). PfR can make dynamic routing decisions based on the throughput, delay/latency, Jitter, to even the availability measured on a network device.

The topology we will use will involve a main office with two dual Internet Edge routers connected into a redundant 2-tier LAN.

The objective in this video is to create a scenario where the throughput through the Primary Edge Router gets saturated. As a result, access out to the Internet will be redirected through the Secondary Edge router in the topology. The routing decision will be made by the Master Controller which will monitor the performance on each Edge Router. We will test access to the Internet from a user computer that will be connected in this environment.

You will also get the full configuration files for the PfR implementation shown in the videos.
