Link aggregation

Link aggregation, also known as network interface card (NIC) aggregation, combines the network interfaces on a physical node into a single, logical connection to provide improved network throughput.

You can add network interfaces to an IP address pool singly or as an aggregate. A link aggregation mode is selected on a per-pool basis and applies to all aggregated network interfaces in the IP address pool. The link aggregation mode determines how traffic is balanced and routed among aggregated network interfaces.
