BGP does not perform load balancing. BGP is specifically designed to select the single best route to a destination, therefore it is not able to perform load balancing itself. However, if you can configure BGP over a virtual connection, you can get a Cisco router to balance traffic using up to six static routes.
USING EQUAL COST PATHS
To do so, you set up more than one equal cost path. Using static routes, you can easilly accomplish this. Each static route is configured to reach a matching prefix, and because they are static routes, have equal administrative distance. Most often, static routes are used between two points. BGP is then configured to run over that set of connections using the 'ebgp-multihop' command.
USING LOOPBACK INTERFACES
By setting up connections between two loopback interfaces, the routers can take advantage of the fact that the loopback interface is never down, and will be 'up' so long as it is reachable via the configured static routes.
