glbp with two routers and two switches

By nareshbabu472 ·
Hi,
My present scenario is like this, I am getting two mpls links
from two different ISP and terminating one link in router and
the other link in other router. And each router is connected to
a switch and from the both switches, servers would be connected.
I am using 1841 routers and 2960 switches and I want to use glbp
for configuring the load sharing. How these two switches have to
be configured so that from these switches the servers have to be
connected.Below I am giving a rough sketch.

ISP------Router-1------Switch1-----|Servers
glbp |Servers
|Servers
ISP------Router-2------Switch2-----|Servers

Can any one pls help me out with this setup, its totally a new
setup. So far I have done the setup with single switch but now
my requirement is with two switches

multiprotocol lable switching is typically at the Campus or Regional level to better handle packets. Im not sure the Cisco 1800 routers can handle MPLS [looking at the 1800 data sheet nothing is mentioned about MPLS]. The 1800 has QoS in its IOS so you can specify certain links that have priority on bandwidth...

If your trying to load balance the LAN and want gbps the 2900 depending upon which model can have 2 gbps uplink ports. you have to use a x over cable on the uplink ports like port A on one switch uplinks to port A on the next switch however unless the switched ports themselves are gbps ports, and the servers have 10/100/1000 NICs traffic is still 10/100 except the uplink.

Pls do let me know what you want to tell, ISP is providing the ethernet link which would be terminated on the routers, pls do let me know the configuratiions which can be done.

What are you load shareing/balanceing? The server load? I would wire each router to each switch. Then connect the severs you need to connect. If you are doing web server balancing, you may need to modify your NAT translatins to round robin to several machines. Could you be a little more clear on what you are trying to do?
