Hello, The stock bonding module in recent kernels can handle a combination of IPOIB (ib0) and regular ethernet links. So I'm pondering using a GBE link as backup in case the primary infiniband link fails (never had a network card fail on me, though, direct connect). However what I haven't been able to determine is if the resulting bond0 interface can be given the 64k MTU IPOIB in connected mode works best with. As in, will such a MTU a) work and b) work well with GBE in case of a failover. Anybody here done this before?
