between 2 DCX switches, 2 trunks (trunk1 with 3 ISLs, trunk2 with 1 ISL). what would happen?

Hi there,

 

this is current situation in my environment which I found out. Of course I would like to corrected as 2 trunks, each trunk has 2 ISLs.

But just curious, if I don't correct now, what is the impacts? how brocade route the traffic between those 2 trunks? each ISL is 8Gb.

would dcx split thr traffic 3:1 between those 2 trunks? or 1:1?

 

Could some gurus advise me? thanks in advance!

look in the Admin Guide for DLS = Dynamic Load Sharing

 

what you exactely mean with:

 

-->>....trunk2 with 1 ISL

 

is a bit confused, Trunking with 1 ISL cannot be created.

 

can you please explain a bit more ?
