6.4. Link Aggregation¶
Multiple data interfaces can be combined into a single logical bond interface to increase fault tolerance and simplify routing configuration. Currently, aggregation of interfaces via the LACP protocol is supported in accordance with the IEEE 802.3 standard.
Use the following command to create a bond interface:
- interface IFNAME
IFNAMEparameter is specified in the
bondXformat, where X is the index of the created interface (can be any number).
To configure the bond interfaces, the same commands as for normal data interfaces, as well as additional commands described below are available.
- lacp min-links (1-64)¶
Set the minimum number of interfaces with active connections in the bond, required to consider the bond active. By default, this number is 1.
- lacp timeout <fast|slow>¶
Set the interval between sending the LACP protocol control messages.
fast- 1 second,
slow- 30 seconds. By default, the
slowinterval is used.
