Bonding is an excellent way to get both increased redundancy and throughput. It is similar to the "Network Teaming" feature in Windows.
There are a few different modes but we will use mode 6, I think it's the best of both worlds, as it is not just a failover, but it provides round robin, so you will get redundancy and load balancing. So if you have a 1G single port, you will have a combined throughput of 4G at this point. Just bear in mind that the true thr........
Having a network bridge allows you to bridge traffic under multiple devices so they can talk natively without using any special routing, iptables/firewall or other trickery.
To create your bridge you need the bridge-utils package for brctl and if you want to do things like bridge VMs that run on a tap device you will need the uml-utilities which provides "tunctl".
1.) Install the utilities to make our bridge
sudo apt-get i........
You can find many ways to specify the VLANin your network configuration but Ifind this is the simplest and quickest.
In this case we are talking about a bridged adapter "vmbr0" but it works even if you just had a normal non-bridged interface.
The key here is that in vmbr0 you'll notice there is no IP address. We just specify "manual".
Below it is a similar stanza for "vmbr0.58" in this case 58 represents the VLAN (change........
I've read a few guides about this but they didn't work for me.
sudo apt-get install bridge-utils
#don't think the above is enough it won't work still even though you have by default an /etc/qemu-ifup that handles it if you have the right tools and setup
