Bonding a virtual interface


I am trying to setup bonding with the current network configuration:

eth0
eth1
eth1:0

My bond0 will contain an ip address and then
eth0 and eth1 will be slaves to the bond0 master.

My question is since the eth1:0 has a different ip address, how
do I configure bonding for this interface? Someone has suggested
setting up a "ifcfg-bond0:0 file and go down that path. I haven't
had time to try it yet. Has anyone else out there done this?

Thanks,

Frank

Why do you need to bond a virtual interface?

Surely the whole idea of bonding is to combine two 100 or 1000 ethernet cards into one to get increased bandwidth. If the virtual interface is sharing a ethernet card then your not going to get any increase in bandwidth.

Another reason to bond two interfaces is reliability. With LACP properly configured on the switch, the network connection will stay up even if one interface goes down. Admittedly this makes more sense when the interfaces are on separate cards, or at least separate controllers.

Additionally you can connect both NICs to different routers which are paired to increase redundancy.
