    Lightbulb Many Connections - Multiple Bonds - Can you reuse an interface?


    Hiya!

    I am wondering something.

    Using a bound network interface (creating a bond to aggregate interfaces), is it possible to reuse an interface again in a new bond?

    For example:
    eth0
    eth1
    wifi0
    wifi1

    bond0 = eth0, eth1, wifi0, wifi1
    bond1 = eth0, eth1
    bond2 = wifi0, wifi1


    thanks

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I'm not sure. This is the current copy of the kernel docs on bonding: Linux Kernel Documentation :: networking : bonding.txt
    It may have some information about it. I did a quick scan, and I think it might be possible, but I'm not absolutely certain.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
