Load balance between two parallel paths

    hey guys, i have a topology which looks thusly:

    Router
    / \
    / \
    \ /
    \ /
    Router

    both paths are tunnels, I would like to load balance between these two
    cisco 3550 catalysts with ip routing enabled, so that not only will it
    load balance but it will do so intelligently, it will distribute
    packets according to load on bandwidth and so on. I am aware that i
    could use variance to allow a worse connection to help in load balance
    but i would prefer if the load were balanced so that the proportions
    are calculated and possibly dynamic. Is this possible and if so what
    are the commands necessary?

    Be aware about routers process load in case you chose the best traffic
    balance, which is on packet basis.

    Good luck
