Bonded | Teamed Network Interface Challenge

Here is another one for the sysadmins in the audience:

How …

… many of your servers have multiple network ports in the back?

… many of them have bonding (teaming for the Windows people) enabled?

… do you know when one interface goes down if the machine stays connected?

… long does it take for you to be notified?

… do you know if they start flapping?

… many have their bonded interfaces plugged in to different switches?

… how do you know if some one mistakenly plugs both in to one switch?

I’ve got a fun week ahead.
