|AGGR(4)||Device Drivers Manual||AGGR(4)|
aggrdriver implements IEEE 802.1AX (formerly 802.3ad) Link Aggregation for combining one or more Ethernet interfaces into a single logical interface. The Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) is used to negotiate the aggregation of member interfaces with a partner device.
aggr interfaces must be configured to use
one or more Ethernet interfaces as ports, and communicate with a partner
device over those ports using LACP. Member interfaces that negotiate with a
partner device are aggregated into a single logical link. Packets
transmitted through an
aggr interface select an
aggregated interface for transmission. Packets received by an aggregated
device appear to be received by the
it is a member of.
aggr interfaces can be created at runtime
create command or by setting up a
hostname.if(5) configuration file
for netstart(8). The interface itself
can be configured with ifconfig(8); see
its manual page for more information.
passive. The default is active mode.
slow. The default is slow timeouts.
Other forms of aggregation of Ethernet interfaces are available using the trunk(4) driver.
aggrvirtual interface on top of two physical interfaces:
# ifconfig aggr0 create # ifconfig aggr0 trunkport em0 # ifconfig aggr0 trunkport em1 # ifconfig aggr0 10.1.1.100/24 # ifconfig aggr0 up
aggrdriver first appeared in OpenBSD 6.6.
