Enter the same configuration in the port channel interface configuration mode without the channel-group and the channel-protocol commands:.

Both technologies are capable of automatically configuring this logical link. It also appears that its configuration syntax is very similar to that of a Cisco switch.

You have a typo there, In the IEEE passed Hope that helps [ Reply ]. The following command shows you the EtherChannel information in a brief, detailed, and one-line summary form.

This is where an EtherChannel is most desirable, it allows use of all available links between two devices. I have 2 dell servers ethefchannel double 10 ports in bonding connected to nexus 6k in lacp and on nexus port channel now when i am taking a iperf connection from server to server it is showing nearly Gb bandwidth.

Etherchannel / Bonding / Port-channel – Network Redundancy for Servers

There are some redundancy modes boonding well which will not increase speed but just increase redundancy. I just added a section to the doc that shows the deprecated syntax and the new syntax.

If not, the switch thinks that there is a problem and will use another interface path unnecessarily. If one of the underlying physical adapters goes down, then the other physical adapter is used etherchanbel handle the communication traffic.

You can perform the test by bringing down one interface, seeing that other interface will be active one and vice-versa.

EtherChannel – Wikipedia

My Profile Log Out. To configure bonding on latest version of SuSE, you can either use YaST or alternatively you can modify the system files as shown below:. The two Cisco Nexus switches involved in a VPC differ from stacking etherchannek VSS technology in that stacking and VSS create a single data and control plane across the multiple switches, whereas VPC creates a single data plane across the two Nexus switches while keeping the two control planes separate.

Modify the slave interfaces so that it does not have the IP address, Netmask. Notify me of followup ethetchannel via e-mail. Just figure out which ports you want to use for your bond and enable LACP on them. All rights reserved Terms of Service.

In the hypothesis of real random hash algorithm, 2, 4 or 8 ports configurations lead to fair load-balancing, whereas other configurations lead to unfair load-balancing. We don’t use VLAN tagging. At this time it looks like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform out there right now.


The first thing to do is associate the ports with the channel-group. Permanently disable it as root in order to make your adapter bonding working properly: It can be used with Ethernet running on twisted pair wiring, single-mode and multimode etherchsnnel. This automatic recovery takes less than one second and is transparent to network applications and the end user. EtherChannel uses a Cisco-proprietary hashing algorithm to etherchannell this link bonding.

Any help would be great. Luckily most of this is taken care of automatically by the networking init scripts. Tapas Mallick September 22,4: Click to cancel reply. I do this on my laptop, so network scripts manage the bridge and wired connection, but I can still use wifi from the graphical interface. It was later acquired by Cisco Systems in This makes it very resilient and desirable for mission-critical applications.
