ECMP – Equal Cost Multiple Path
ECMP is a strategy used in packet routing whereby several routes exist to the same destination, all of which have an equal cost and hence will be equal to one another as part of a routing metric calculation. Therefore, if a network hop has ECMP active, it will load balance across all available onward hops.
