15.6. Bond

You can find the Bond Settings at Interfaces → Assign → Bond.

Bonds can only be configured on top of:

  • Physical Interfaces

We support the following Bond modes:

  • balance-rr (Loadbalance Round Robin)
  • active-backup (Active/Backup)
  • balance-xor (Load Balance with XOR)
  • 802.3ad (LAG (802.3ad))
  • balance-tlb (Adaptive transmit load balancing)
  • balance-alb (Adaptive Loadbalancing)

You can configure the xmit policy that determines how the packets are distributed between Bond members. This is only available for balance-xor, 802.3ad and balance-tlb.

  • Layer 2
  • Layer 2+3
  • Layer 3+4

You can use an ARP check with an IPv4 Address for balance-rr or balance-tlb instead of the MII check for a bond failure.

MII Mon configures the MII monitoring of the Bond ports in miliseconds.

Up Delay configures how long a Bond port is delayed until it is up in miliseconds when MII Mon is used.

Down Delay configures how long a Bond port is delayed until it is shut down in miliseconds when MII Mon is used.

You can pick and change the interfaces in a Bond on the Edit or Add option of the bond.

In case of active-backup you can choose the default active backup in the settings.

Assign to new Interface is an option shown when you create a new VLAN and it will automatically assign the Interfaces as described in Assign Interfaces.
