Just a reminder... you need the specialized switch if you want to use
bonding in the XOR or ROUND_ROBIN mode. The active backup node does not
require a specialized switch. Of course, the throughput is 1X in active
backup mode, where X is the throughput of a single adapter. The XOR or
ROUND_ROBIN mode has the potential for nX throughput, where n is the number

Did you read the bonding.txt file in the kernel's Documentation/networking
BTW, "bonding" == "sun trunking" == "cisco etherchannel" == "load sharing"
and a few other possible names. In a situation where you want to use all
channels simultaneously you need the other end (usually a switch) to be

The 5 year plan:
In five years we'll make up another plan.
Or just re-use this one.
