Detailed Description

The load-balance object represents an ECMP choice.

The buckets of a load balance object point to the sub-graph after the choice is made. THe load-balance object is also object type returned from a FIB table lookup. As such it needs to represent the case where there is only one coice. It may seem like overkill to use a load-balance object in this case, but the reason is for performance. If the load-balance object were not the result of the FIB lookup, then some other object would be. The case where there was ECMP this other object would need a load-balance as a parent and hence just add an unnecessary indirection.

It is also the object in the DP that represents a via-fib-entry in a recursive route. Load-balance main
