: Mhh what's that boding module ? Does it do fault tolerance ? Currently
: I have my two cards plugged into a switch but only one has an IP
: address, the other network card is configured as spare in case the
: first network card fails, then it switches to the second network card.
: Can bonding do that ?
: And is bonding part of the Linux kernel ?
See Documentation/networking/bonding.txt in the kernel source tree.
I have a VERY scant bit of documentation here, which basically rehashes
the canonical stuff from the text file mentioned above (I haven't had
time yet to thoroughly document how high-availablility bonding works):
