CONFIG_BONDING: Bonding driver support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_BONDING has multiple definitions:

Bonding driver support found in drivers/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_BONDING:

Help text

Say 'Y' or 'M' if you wish to be able to 'bond' multiple Ethernet Channels together. This is called 'Etherchannel' by Cisco, 'Trunking' by Sun, 802.3ad by the IEEE, and 'Bonding' in Linux.

The driver supports multiple bonding modes to allow for both high performance and high availability operation.

Refer to Documentation/networking/bonding.txt for more information.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called bonding.

Bonding driver support found in arch/um/Kconfig_net

The configuration item CONFIG_BONDING:

Help text

(none)

Bonding driver support found in drivers/s390/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_BONDING:

Help text

Say 'Y' or 'M' if you wish to be able to 'bond' multiple Ethernet Channels together. This is called 'Etherchannel' by Cisco, 'Trunking' by Sun, and 'Bonding' in Linux.

If you have two Ethernet connections to some other computer, you can make them behave like one double speed connection using this driver. Naturally, this has to be supported at the other end as well, either with a similar Bonding Linux driver, a Cisco 5500 switch or a SunTrunking SunSoft driver.

This is similar to the EQL driver, but it merges Ethernet segments instead of serial lines.

If you want to compile this as a module ( = code which can be inserted in and removed from the running kernel whenever you want), say M here and read Documentation/modules.txt. The module will be called bonding.
