RTFM -- Read the Fine Manual.


APA is one of those things that can be configured in several different ways depending on what exactly you want to accomplish.  Here is a the APA Administrators Guide.


>>What is the main advantage for apa configuration


What do you want to accomplish?  APA can:


1) Combine 2 or more lan interfaces to give you more throughput

2) Have lan interfaces grouped so that if one fails another takes over

3) A combination of 1 and 2 (I think).
