Create a LAG Interface

Prerequisites

You must already have one or more provisioned PacketFabric ports.

To be included in a LAG, the ports must be at the same site, in the same zone, and have the same speed.

TIP: You can use the Bulk Quote Provision Tool to quickly create multiple ports with common properties.

  4. Under Select LAG Members, your existing interfaces are grouped together by site and zone. Select ports within the same group that have the same speed and optic.

  5. Under LAG Confirmation, enter a meaningful name for the LAG and select the LACP interval.

    The LACP interval determines the frequency in which LACP control packets (LACP PDUs) are sent. This in turn determines the timeout value of 3 or 90 seconds. If a PDU is not returned from the remote connection within the allotted time, the LACP session drops.

    You can later change the LACP interval from the LAG details.

  6. Click Create LAG

When you return to your interfaces dashboard, the ports you selected are now grouped together under your LAG.

Click Toggle LAG Details to view the ports.

From here you can also modify, delete, and disable the LAG.
