So this means it does the xor over the whole IP header?balance-xor
This mode balances outgoing traffic across the active ports based on hashed protocol header information and accepts incoming traffic from any active port. Mode is very similar to LACP except that it is not standardized and works with layer-3-and-4 hash policy.
But if I check what the Linux kernel guys understands under XOR (http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collabor ... ng/bonding, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link_aggregation
) I get following:
Which one is now correct?Transmit based on [(source MAC address XOR'd with destination MAC address) modulo slave count]. This selects the same slave for each destination MAC address. This mode provides load balancing and fault tolerance.
ps: A table which monitoring is possible for which mode would be nice on the wiki page
