About IPMP Administration

IP network multipathing (IPMP) is a Layer 3 (L3) technology that enables you to group multiple IP interfaces into a single logical interface. With features such as failure detection, transparent access failover, and packet load spreading, IPMP improves network performance by ensuring that the network is always available to the system.

Note -  To administer IPMP and issue commands described in this chapter, you must have the appropriate rights profile. See Using Rights Profiles to Perform Network Configuration.
