    It does not migrate, it never _was_ on another interfaces.
    eth1 and eth2 are simply not used in your configuration.

    Seems, the theory is wrong. 8)
    Especially for httpd, where received load is next to zero comparing
    to output one.

    They are by default.

    If you want to get something really useful from multiple links,
    do not attach them to single broadcast wire and use router instead.

    If you do not believe, write 1 to /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/*/hidden
    and check.
