How to send evenly traffic on checkpoint gateways using Unicast

Hi Mates,

I want to implement load sharing on checkpoint gateway where I can achieve uniform traffic distribution on security gateways 

For this I am trying with Unicast but this configures 30%-70% load on pivot and other gateway respectively. 

How to handle even traffic distribution by keeping unicast approach ? 

Regards,

Rajnish

Not possible as all traffic goes through the pivot node in unicast mode.
If you want more even load distribution, you have to use Multicast or better, Maestro.

Thanks. 

So for multicast except configuring in smart console, what else need to be done locally on GAIA ? 

Is there any guide that provides steps to implement multicast in a least configuration (i.e. only 2 gateways are configured in cluster) 

Regards,

Rajnish

The ClusterXL guide for your specific version.
But I believe you are correct, just change the mode and push policy.
