double 1Gb link

#1

Post by françois ROLAND »

Hi

On my new NAS hardware (sun X2270), It's 2 network interface

Is it possible to link both to my switch to get 2Gb speed on my network?

If yes, how could I set it?

Regards

Thanks for your answer

Yes, the goal is to have a better speed to share data to everybody

Of course, a single client can not get more than his card

I think its worth mentioning that (from the handbook)
LACP balances outgoing traffic across the active ports based on hashed protocol header information and accepts incoming traffic from any active port. The hash includes the Ethernet source and destination address and, if available, the VLAN tag, and the IPv4 or IPv6 source and destination address.
this means you can connect to lacp/laggs between two machines and by appropriate selection of (for instance) vlan tags, you can get traffic to flow over one or other link. Sure you could do the same with two independent links, but LACP also gives you failover. This is particularly useful for a host with multiple VMs.
