I am configuring a stack of 3750 switches and will be connecting to another stack using etherchannel. I also need multiple port channel interfaces for an esx enviroment. A former colleague of mine had mentioned once that the ports in a channel group should be separated by at least 8 ports if located on a single 24 port switch, or located on separate switches. This was not a redundancy issue but something to do with getting maximum throughput.
Can anyone explain if this is correct and if so why, I can't seem to find anything elsewhere to back it up?
