Both trunk aggregations and datalink multipathing (DLMP) aggregations support nearly the same features to improve network performance. However, differences do exist. The following table presents a general comparison of the two types of link aggregation in Oracle Solaris.
1The aggregation spreads its VNICs across all ports. However, individual VNICs cannot spread the load on multiple ports.
2DLMP aggregations must always use an intermediary switch to send packets to other destination systems. However, when using DLMP aggregations, do not configure the switch for link aggregation.
