Summary of Eth-Trunk Configuration Tasks
This section describes Ethernet interface features supported
by the NetEngine 8000 F. Familiarizing yourself with these features helps you
complete the configuration tasks quickly and accurately.
Eth-Trunk is a technique that bundles Ethernet interfaces into
a logical interface (called an Eth-Trunk interface) to increase bandwidth,
load-balance traffic, and improve network reliability.
The NetEngine 8000 F
supports three working modes for Eth-Trunk interfaces:
static LACP mode, manual 1:1 master/backup
and manual load balancing mode. The procedure for configuring
an Eth-Trunk interface is as follows:
- Create an Eth-Trunk interface and specify the working mode of
the Eth-Trunk interface.
- Add member interfaces to the Eth-Trunk interface for the Eth-Trunk
interface to take effect.
- Adjust parameters for the Eth-Trunk interface and its member interfaces
to improve interface reliability.
- (Optional) Configure the Eth-Trunk interface to support other
features to improve network reliability. For example, configure Eth-Trunk
sub-interfaces for inter-VLAN communication.
Eth-Trunk interfaces support
the E-Trunk features to meet special requirements.
