NIC Teaming settings

NIC Teaming settings

I want to set up NIC teaming for maximum performance/throughput when connected to a Cisco Switch (ie an EtherChannel Tunk)

WHat settings would be the best for the teaming software?

Re: NIC Teaming settings

John,
What is the server model? the best you can get will be SLB or LACP teaming mode, if you are using 2 Gig NICs you can get 2GB TX/RX by configuring the port aggregation on the cisco switch, team mode can be automatic.

For SLB:
interface range gix/x - x/y
channel-group # mode on

For LACP (802.3ad)
interface range gix/x - x/y
channel-group # mode active
