NIC Teaming/Bonding

Hi Chandu,

NIC teaming is the process of grouping together several physical NICs into one single logical NIC, it can be used for network fault tolerance and transmit load balance. The process of grouping NICs is called teaming.

It has two purposes:

Fault Tolerance: By teaming more than one physical NIC to a logical NIC, high availability is maximized. Even if one NIC fails, the network connection does not cease and continues to operate on other NICs.

Load Balancing: Balancing the network traffic load on a server can enhance the functionality of the server and the network.

example: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk389/tk213/technologies_configuration_example09186a008089a821.shtml

Hope it helps.

Regards
