Bond, Ethernet Bond
If someone unplugs your network cable, do you expect your server to talk, or do you expect it to die?
When a server is used in production, you want every possible level of fault tolerance. Ethernet bonding allows you to create redundant NICs on a server so that you can lose a NIC, a ethernet cable, or even potentially a switch, without downtime. In this talk Kyle will introduce the concept of ethernet bonding, discuss the different bonding modes, and describe how to set up bonding on Red Hat and Debian-based systems.
