Cisco (and probably several others) have done this by default for many many moons now. By way of practical demonstration, notice that equal weight routes load balance per flow, not per packet. What it allows is subsequent routing decisions to be offloaded from a route processor down to the asics on the card level. And don't try to turn CEF off on a layer 3 switch - even a lightly loaded one - unless you want your throughput to resemble 56k.
Just for clarification, the Virginia Department of Health Professionals is not the same agency as the Virginia Department of Health.
Each Virginia agency is its own little independent IT fiefdom, with all the disparity of budget and clue that entails. At least until their IT is taken over by Northrop Grumman, which is another clusterfuck entirely...
It is much harder to find a job than to keep one.
