There is no portchannel for the ace module.

This is a tengig interface.

For example, with an ACE in slot 2.

Does this imply the ACE module can only interface with the fabric at 10Gbps?  How is this to function up to the advertised (and license offered) 16Gbps? I'm close to approaching my 8Gbps license.

The 10G name is just a name but the backplane connection is indeed 16G full-duplex to the switch fabric.
