Seeing huge packet loss after Channel - bonding (NIC-Teaming)
We are trying to implement NIC-teaming / Channel-bonding on RHEL5 m/c.
I googled and found the configuration step which we implemented, I can see the bind interface configured and up but Iím facing huge packet loss (ranging 50-70%).
Please suggest which is the required mode to avoid this.
Little description on our scenario:
>> We have teamed 3 eth-adapters into one using mgmt IP.
>> Bond Int is up and running and as expected rest 3 disabled.
>> mode used is = 6 ( redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.4/html/Deployment_Guide/s2-modules-bondingused this link to set suitable mode.
Please let us know if some config file output or something is required.
After successfully configuring thr bond-interface, still I'm not able to SSH/Telnet as there is huge packet loss, can somebody explain what combination to use, we are using it over cisco n7000 switches.

Is the device you are connected to know of this bonding?

Please post config files that you use to setup bonding. These should just be the "/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts" files.
