Subjectbonding problems?
Date
Hello,

I have been expermenting with the bonding driver and well, it works, but..
if you unplug the cable to one of the bonded interfaces it never appears to
figure out that that part of the channel is down, hense it drops every other
ping you send it(or any other packet for that matter). Is this the way it
is supposed to work? I know when I configure cisco etherchannel between
swithes, if you lose a link, all traffic is then sent across the remaining
link[s].

also if this is not the right way to achieve my goal, please point me in the
correct direction.

well anyways here is my setup

compaq proliant 2500 (linux does not detect the memory correctly in this
box,
requiring me to pass:append="mem=exactmap mem=640K@0 mem=255M@1M" in
lilo.conf)
any plans to fix that??

2xPPro200, 256M ram, 400meg swap, raid5 blah blah

Kernel: 2.4.14-pre6 SMP
