    Running CentOS 5.4 bonding v3.4.0

    Tried to setup 8x1GbE ports to bond0 with 802.3ad on a single Cisco switch.

    I end up with two aggregators with 4 ports in each aggregator.

    One aggregator is active.

    Is it true that the limitation of ports in single aggregator is 4?

    The bonding driver has no limit to the number of ports in an aggregator, nor does the 802.3ad protocol specification.   Cisco switches and routers have varying limits to the number of ports per channel group; for some the limit is, indeed, four.
