Bnx2 Nic Bonding Failover Delay On Oracle Linux 5
Last updated on JULY 24, 2014
Applies to:Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 5.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On Oracle Linux systems, bonding eth0 and eth1 as bond0(mode=1), delay comes when doing 'ifup eth[0-1]' on a bond0.
Problem appears at the ifup eth[0-1]. E.g.:
# ifup eth0 <-- OK
# ifdown eth1 <-- OK
# ifup eth1 <-- OK
# ifdown eth0 <-- OK
# ifup eth0 <-- hangs for few seconds, 7 package was lost at ping
During executed above commands, ping from the host, found some packets lost(7-20).
