MARS Teamed/Bonded NICs

Answered Question
Jun 11th, 2008

Hi! I was wondering if there will be a future enhancement for MARS to bond/team the network interfaces? Thanks!

I have this problem too.

gotcha, that's a good point and I never considered that angle. AFAIK, Cisco/MARS expects the interfaces to be on separate networks, so I would be surprised if that was even on the roadmap.

Are you having interface issues? IME, even on a 200, if you're receiving enough traffic to overwhelm the 1Gb interface, there's a pretty good chance that MARS will have stopped working by then anyway;-)

No interface issues to report.

I am trying to use bonded NICs for redundancy purposes. I would like to patch my MARS 200 NICs in to a stacked 3750 switchstack, so that if a switch in the stack were to fail, my infrastructure will still have connectivity to MARS via the other switch in the stack.

For our environment, we cannot lose connectivity to our MARS appliances.
