Sorry if this is covered elsewhere. I know the Linux Bonding FAQ is supposed to talk about this, but I didn't see anything specific in it on what parameters to use. Basically, I want to bond two GigE ports between two servers which are connected with straight cables with no switch and use them for DRBD. I tried the various bonding modes with "miimon=100", but none of them worked. Say the eth1 ports on both servers were cabled together, and the same for eth5. Then, I could create the bond with eth1 and eth5. However, if I downed one of the ports on one server, say eth1, it would failover on that server to eth5, but the other server would not failover to eth5. Eventually, I decided to use "arp_interval=100" and "arp_ip_target=<ip of other bonded pair>" instead of "miimon=100". This seems to work as I expected, with the bond properly failing over. Is this the right way to do this kind of bonding? Also, right now I'm using "mode=active-backup". Would one of the other modes allow higher throughput and still allow automatic failover and transparency to DRBD?
