In this paper, the authors propose a simplified multi-path aggregation scheme, Ethernet with Flow Label for Multi-Path, called EFL-MP. There are several aggregation schemes, such as Link Aggregation and Multi-path TCP, for multi-path load balancing. However, Link Aggregation does not distribute a single flow into multiple paths due to its MAC address based flow dispatch. In addition, the Multipath TCP scheme is not suitable for implementing into hardware because of the implementation complexity caused by the management of the two stages of SEQuence number (SEQ) (i.e., the SEQ assigned to a path and the SEQ assigned to the flow); thus it fails to provide high throughput and short latency.
