Deploying Link Aggregation Configurations

The following figure shows an example of a simple link aggregation.

Figure 1  Link Aggregation Configuration

image:Graphic shows a block for the link aggr1. Three physical datalinks, net0–net2, descend from the link block.

The aggregation aggr1 consists of three underlying datalinks to serve network traffic. The underlying links are hidden from external applications. Instead, only the logical datalink aggr1 is accessible.

    Oracle Solaris supports the following types of link aggregations:

  • Trunk aggregations

  • Datalink multipathing (DLMP) aggregations

For a comparison, see Comparison: Trunk Aggregations and DLMP.
