Asymmetric Routing

Analysis of some of our routes shows the potential for asymmetric
routing...that is...the transmit path will be different than the return path
for packets.


How noticeable is this likely to be for customer traffic/applications?

Are there failure conditions waiting to haunt us?

For this type of route, how does one go about troubleshooting route failures?

Any bad experiences out their with such routes in place?

Am I being paranoid?
