You can add a new port channel configuration or edit an existing configuration.
|Index||Set an index value between 1 and 8|
|Admin Status||Use the drop-down list box to activate or deactivate the
admin status for the selected port channel.
Select Enable to define this port channel as active to the profile it supports. Select Disable to deactivate this port channel configuration within the profile. It can be activated at any future time when needed. The default setting is enabled
|Description||Type a brief description for the port channel (64 characters maximum). The description should reflect the port channel's intended function|
|Speed||Select the speed at which the port channel can receive
and transmit the data. Select either 10
Mbps, 100 Mbps,
1000 Mbps, 2500
Mbps, 5000 Mbps, or
auto. Select either of these
options to establish a respective speed data transfer rate
for the selected half duplex or full duplex transmission
over the port.
These options are not available if auto is selected. Select auto to activate the port channel to automatically exchange information about data transmission speed and duplex capabilities. Auto negotiation is helpful when in an environment where different devices are connected and disconnected on a regular basis
|Duplex||Use the drop-down list box to select
Full as the duplex
Select Half duplex to send data over the port channel, then immediately receive data from the same direction in which the data was transmitted. Like a Full duplex transmission, a Half duplex transmission can carry data in both directions, just not at the same time. Select Full duplex to transmit data to and from the port channel at the same time. Using Full duplex, the port channel can send data while receiving data as well. Select Automatic to dynamically duplex as port channel performance needs dictate
|Load Balance||Use the Load Balance drop-down list box to define whether port channel load balancing is conducted using a Source/Destination IP (src-dst-ip) or a Source/Destination MAC (src-dst-mac)|
