Configuring optimized application routing based on the path

Examples to help you to understand [content needed].

The examples in this section are based on the following topology.

Figure 1. Path monitor example topology. In this example, three path monitor instances monitor the network paths for three provider networks and switches traffic between providers based on path quality. Based on the path monitor configuration in this example, the vRouter routes the VoIP traffic over the best path.
Layer 1 1 2 3 4
  1. dp0p161p1 — a fiber-optic Internet link
  2. dp0p224p1 — a lower-quality backup fiber-optic Internet link
  3. dp0p256p1 — a backup LTE Internet link
  4. dp0p33p1 — the ingress interface for all traffic that is destined for the Internet

The provider for non-VoIP traffic is chosen by use of ECMP.
