Link Aggregation

Configuration > Networking > Link Aggregation

This tab displays the link aggregation details for all appliances selected in the appliance tree to the left.


Link aggregation combines data from multiple interfaces into a channel group that provides a single high-speed link. Configuring link aggregation also adds failover redundancy to the interfaces in the group.

View Aggregation Details

To view link aggregation details for one or more appliances, select an appliance or group of appliances. The following information is displayed for each of the selected appliances:

Column Description
Appliance Name Name of the EdgeConnect appliance.
Channel Groups If any channel groups have been configured on the selected appliance, the channel group names are listed here.

NOTE: You can create up to four channel groups per appliance; two each on the LAN side (blan0, blan1) and WAN side (bwan0, bwan1).
Interfaces Physical or virtual interfaces that are included in the channel group. A channel group can contain two, three, or four interfaces.

NOTE: You cannot add an interface that has already been deployed on the appliance deployment page, and an interface can only be included in one channel group.
MTU The MTU size configured for the channel group. The configured MTU will override any existing MTU settings when the channel group is deployed. The default MTU is 1500.

To add, change, or delete channel groups on an appliance, click the edit icon to the left of the appliance name.

  4. Specify the MTU to be applied to all interfaces in the group. The default MTU is 1500.

  5. Click Add.
