Hello. The page from the wiki is not clear enough to understand what exactly this service does. I have to specify an ip pair( source and destination) and a port but how exactly he does load balancing ? If he has more paths between source and destination how does he distributes the load ? Does he calculates the paths (using for example Dijsktra) and automatically creates the flows through multiple paths ?

Anyway, can someone give me a global explanation on how it works so I can't understand if I can use it in my application or not ? Because the wiki page ( https://wiki.opendaylight.org/view/OpenDaylightController:LoadBalancer_Service) is not clear on how this works.

Thanks in advance, Nuno B.
