Disadvantages of Policy Routing

Some things should be considered before arbitrarily deciding to implement policy routing:

• A backup path should be in place in case the defined next-hop router goes down. If there is no alternative defined, policy routing will default to dynamic routing decisions.

• Additional CPU is required to examine every source address to effect the defined policy.

• Extra configuration is required.

• The possibility exists that other traffic will be disrupted.
