ECMP for OSPF

The OSPF routing protocol in Check Point’s dynamic routing suite explicitly allows Equal-Cost Multi-Path

(ECMP) routing, a strategy for routing packets along multiple “best paths” of equal cost. By load balancing

traffic over multiple (redundant) routes, ECMP increases network bandwidth.

Check Point’s dynamic routing suite supports up to six simultaneous routes, which means that up to six

multiple routes can be used for ECMP. If the routing metric calculations discovers more than six paths of

equal cost to the same destination, the ECMP feature makes available only the first six.
