What is next hop separation in the NE80E and NE5000E?
For versions earlier than NE40E/80E V300R001B052 (excluding B052), the load of two routes is balanced between two outbound interfaces. Thus, four forwarding entries are generated. Change the outbound interfaces in a forwarding entry into pointers and put all interfaces in a table. This is called next hop separation. A forwarding entry may contain multiple outbound interface pointers.
Currently, only the TCAM table of the LPU implements the next hop separation.
Versions earlier than NE40E/80E V300R001B052/NE5000E V200R002B39L do not support next hop separation.
