The scenario here is more of switching ISPs.
Commonly, you would have two different routers, one from each T1
provider, and you may not have direct access to their configuration.
I understand the setup correctly, each T1 router was connected to a
separate NIC on the server. This iproute2 method allows you to use
WAN connections "separately". It is not really a high-availability
load-balancing thing, it's merely a way to transition from one
I understand the intention here and that is the point I was trying to make.
Even if you're working with disparate ISP's, you can mux the connections
into one pipe for transition purposes so you don't get dumped traffic
inbound since it's sees one origination interface. The bit about bandwidth
and filtering was just so you could monitor what comes and goes on each
