Netdump over bonded interface ?

Netdump over bonded interface ?
Hey there,..
I have heard from admins, that netdump usually fails over a bonded network interface.

I have written a multi-OS checkdump script , which checks if the respective crashdump utility on corresponding OS is correctly configured, space is available, etc etc etc.

For the netdump check, I wanted to add in a check to see if netdump is using bonded interface . How do I do that ? I can easily find out if the system has bonding enabled or if bond0 is up or down .
But I want to know if Netdump is going to use this bonded interface to send out the dump, or the usual interface ?

/etc/sysconfig/netdump doesnt give much of an idea. Does LOCALPORT setting have something to do with it ? It defaults to 6666.
I have minimal understanding about the networking side of this problem, could some one please tell me :
1. How do I find out which network interface (outgoing) netdump is currently configured to use ? How to check if its bonded or not ??

2. I also wanted to do a ethtool $NIC to check if the ethernet link is
down or up, so this brings back to finding out which network interface is used by netdump , eth0 , eth1 , bond0 ??? How can I find this out.

Thanks,
Shrikant

NAME
slattach - attach serial lines as network interfaces SYOPNSIS
slattach ttyname [ baudrate ] DESCRIPTION
Slattach is used to assign a tty line to a network interface, and to define the network source and destination addresses. The ttyname parameter is a string of the form ``ttyXX'', or ``/dev/ttyXX''. The optional baudrate parameter is used to set the speed of the connec- tion. If not specified, the default of 9600 is used. Only the super-user may attach a network interface. To detach the interface, use `ifconfig interface-name down' after killing off the slattach process. interface-name is the name that is shown by netstat(1) EXAMPLES
slattach ttyh8 slattach /dev/tty01 4800 DIAGNOSTICS
Messages indicating the specified interface does not exit, the requested address is unknown, the user is not privileged and tried to alter an interface's configuration. SEE ALSO
