Hello, I'm trying to agregate twoethernet interfaces on
two linux (redhat 7.4.20). I' using bonging (v2.4.20-
20030320"). I'd like not to use mii to monitor link
availability, so I'm trying with arp monitoring. Althought
when working in HA mode it works, when working on
mode 0 It doesn't work (it keeps on sending arp replies,
but the system doesn't care when the interface is not
receiving any frame, and losses one out of two packets)

Is it possible to make it work? maybe patching the
bonding driver?
