NAT Load Balancing

NAT Load Balancing


With the limited public IP addresses and the ever-increasing private users and access bandwidth, a single VSUF-80/160 fails to meet service deployment requirements. Multiple service boards need to be used to provide more session and bandwidth resources.

Figure 3-16 shows the centralized NAT load balancing scenario. When multiple user packets are transmitted, the LPU uses the source IP address (SIP) in the packets to select a VSUF based on hash algorithm. The packets are then forwarded from the SFU to the selected VSUF for NAT implementation.

During centralized NAT load balancing, the multi-core CPU of a VSUF can share multiple global static address pools that are matched by different ACL. In addition, one NAT instance can be bound to multiple CPUs to ensure flexible extension for a single NAT user.

Figure 3-17 shows the distributed NAT load balancing scenario. The VSUF is deployed on a BRAS. When a user goes online, load balancing can be implemented by instance and CPU to associate with CGN for allocation of public IP addresses. All the NAT instances and CPUs on the same domain are calculated as a whole. The NAT instance and CPU with the lowest number of online users are selected for evenly load balancing. After a NAT instance and a CPU are selected, public IP addresses are obtained from this CPU, and both the forward traffic and reverse traffic are distributed to the CPU in the NAT instance for service processing.

During distributed NAT load balancing, multiple CPUs are bound to a NAT instance. When a BRAS is associated to allocate public IP addresses, multiple CPUs on the NAT instance are used for load balancing, and user traffic is allocated to these CPUs for NAT service processing.
