Do you need STP enabled to run active active bonding one CentOS4?
I would like to improve the throughput of my db servers, running CentOS4.7 64bit. I wanted to bond the 2 interfaces together, and active active configuration to provide more throughput and provide fault tolerance. My question is this, my network is a flat Layer 2, with 2 gigabit dumb switches, so no Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). If I bond the 2 nics active active, then plug one nic in one switch and one nic in the other switch, would I create a routing loop?
