🗒 Tutorial


A network bond groups multiple physical network interfaces on a system into a single logical group interface and is connected to a network switch. Bonding can facilitate higher connection availability through redundancy by maintaining the connection if a link in the bond group fails. Also, the aggregation of the physical network interface provides higher throughput by load balancing the traffic across the interfaces in the bond.


This lab demonstrates using the Network Manager CLI (nmcli) utility to:

  • Create a bond interface
  • Add multiple physical interfaces as links in the bond interface group
  • Change the bond mode used for monitoring the status and the distribution of traffic across the bond interface links
  • Delete the bond interface
