Linux Ethernet Bonding Configuration

Filed under
HowTos

Ethernet bonding refers to aggregating multiple ethernet channels together to form a single channel. This is primarily used for redundancy in ethernet paths or for load balancing. This page refers in particular to performing ethernet bonding under linux, and so does not limit itself to discussion of 802.3ad Trunk Aggregation.

Ethernet Bonding Types
The linux kernel bonding module supports a number of bonding types.

Round Robin
Packets are transmitted in a round robin fashion over the available slave interfaces. Provides both load balancing and fault tolerance

Active Backup
One slave interface is active at any time. If one interface fails, another interface takes over the MAC address and becomes the active interface. Provides fault tolerance only. Doesn’t require special switch support

Balance XOR
