IFENSLAVE(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					      IFENSLAVE(8)

NAME
ifenslave -- Attach and detach slave network devices to a bonding device. SYNOPSIS
ifenslave [-acdfhuvV] [--all-interfaces] [--change-active] [--detach] [--force] [--help] [--usage] [--verbose] [--version] master slave ... DESCRIPTION
ifenslave is a tool to attach and detach slave network devices to a bonding device. A bonding device will act like a normal Ethernet network device to the kernel, but will send out the packets via the slave devices using a simple round-robin scheduler. This allows for simple load- balancing, identical to "channel bonding" or "trunking" techniques used in switches. The kernel must have support for bonding devices for ifenslave to be useful. OPTIONS
-a, --all-interfaces Show information about all interfaces. -c, --change-active Change active slave. -d, --detach Removes slave interfaces from the bonding device. -f, --force Force actions to be taken if one of the specified interfaces appears not to belong to an Ethernet device. -h, --help Display a help message and exit. -u, --usage Show usage information and exit. -v, --verbose Print warning and debug messages. -V, --version Show version information and exit. If not options are given, the default action will be to enslave interfaces. EXAMPLE
The following example shows how to setup a bonding device and enslave two real Ethernet devices to it: # modprobe bonding # ifconfig bond0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.0.0 # ifenslave bond0 eth0 eth1 AUTHOR
