Publication Date:  2012-07-27 Views:  33 Downloads:  0
Issue Description
Q:
Why are multiple addresses returned in each hop upon the tracert command? 
 
Alarm Information
Null
Handling Process
A:
When the tracert command is run, usually the following packet is returned:
traceroute to 10.1.1.17(10.1.1.17) 30 hops max,40 bytes packet
1 192.168.5.61 2 ms 1 ms 1 ms
2 * * *
The packet contains the next-hop address and the delay of each packet.
Sometimes the following special situation occurs:
traceroute to 10.1.2.17(10.1.2.17) 30 hops max,40 bytes packet
1 192.168.5.61 3 ms 211.1.1.1 2 ms 192.168.5.61 1 ms
2 192.168.5.2 1 ms 10.1.3.2 1 ms 192.168.5.2 1 ms
3 * * *
The packet contains several next-hop addresses and the delay corresponding to each address.
When the tracert command is run, three packets are sent continuously for each hop. If the packet-based load balancing is enabled on the device, three next-hop addresses can be displayed by running the load-balance{ ip | mac | packet-all }command.
If the packet-based load balancing is disabled on the device, only one next-hop address is displayed.
