With euroNAS software you can bond several networking ports in to a single unit. With this functionality you can achieve greater bandwidth and / or greater redundancy.
Following options are supported
– Round Robin
Performance and Redundancy – load balancing and fault tolerance.
Traffic is balanced between the ports
– Port Failover
Redundancy – one port is active – others are in standby.
In case of failure standby port takes over immediately
Redundancy – transmits everything on all slave interfaces
– Dynamic Link Aggregation (802.3ad)
Performance and Redundancy – requires switch that supports 802.3ad
– Adaptive Load Balancing
Performance – works with any switch. Not suitable for direct connection
If you wish to boundle networking ports go to network management and click on “Network Administration”.
Select option “Create Network Bond”
Select network ports
Select what kind of network bond you wish to create
Configure the TCP/IP settings – in case that one of the ports already is configured – it will offer its settings
In the network overview you can now see the ports and its network bond group. In this example we have removed the networking cable on purpose.
Under network bonds you can see more Details of this bond. In this example we have removed the networking cable on purpose.
