gateway tier priority backwards?

(1/5) > >>

repomanz:
Hi folks - maybe i'm reading this wrong in the help pages.  What I understand is that in a gateway group, the interface connection has priority values.  Meaning, if i have interfaces that are defined as tier 1 within the gateway group that they should take priority over interfaces within the same gateway group that are defined as tier 2.

Not sure why but my tier 1 interfaces seem to be taking lower priority than the tier 2.  Meaning, the amount of traffic coming into and out of my tier 2 defined interfaces is much greater than the tier 1 interfaces.  I have checked logs and such and my tier 1 interfaces are not going down. 

thoughts?

** bump  **

Do i understand the documentation correctly? Is this a bug perhaps?  My tier interfaces take priority over the tier interfaces.  A side note, my interfaces are openvpn clients.

heper:
your vpn provider probably pushes a default route that overwrites the policy routing.

check 'dont pull routes' & try again

repomanz:
I have checked on all vpn sessions (for both tier 1 and tier 2 providers)

- don't pull routes
- don't add/remove routes

Hi folks - here is what i'm talking about for example.  1 day of traffic. Notice provider B appears to be handling all the traffic.
