Hi Willy,

Thanks for your feedback !

It will be in load-balancing mode. The goal is to increase our traffic to more than 1Gbps.

Thanks for the advice.
I will test ALB and dynamic 802.3ad (if the switch support it). At this time, I don't know exactly the capabilities of the switch we use.

I don't think XOR is fine for our case, because we need to balance the input and output traffic.
