The wisest mind has something yet to learn.

George Santayana (1863 - 1952)

Link Aggregation

Certain Gigabit Ethernet switches have an interesting feature called Link Aggregation whereby the switch dynamically manages the data bandwidth between multiple NIC cards. This is very usefull in some cases. Consider three fast GigE Vision cameras running through a switch to two NIC cards. Without link aggregation, you would need to allocate two of the three cameras to one NIC and the ramaining camera to the other NIC. This obviously does not take advantage of the total bandwidth provided by two NIC cards. However, with Link Aggregation, the switch will optimally divide the data created by the three cameras and equally allocated the data between the two NIC cards thus maximizing the data throughput.
