Linux Networking - Performance Based Routing

Good Afternoon All,

I am currently using a combination of BIRD(Bird Internet Routing Daemon), ip rule, and traffic control, to control the routing and flow of traffic over a server with multiple NICs. This is all working well, but recently I have begun looking at trying to make this solution a bit more dynamic in how it uses the connections for QoS etc.

In Cisco they have a feature known as 'Performance Based Routing',

I would quite like to implement something similar on my servers to have it maximise the usage of a number of internet links, but be a bit dynamic about it. I have been unable to identify any suitable way of doing this so far and was wondering if anyone was able to recommend a tool or configuration that would achieve similar results?

Thank you for your time,



networking, routing
