Bonding Network Interfaces on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

From Ubuntu documentation.

Bonding is also called port trunking or link aggregation and it will let you combine several network ports to make a single group. This combines the bandwidth from several interfaces as a single connection.

Set up

$ sudo apt-get install ifenslave

This example bridges eth0 and eth1 together.

Modify /etc/network/interfaces as follows:
Then create /etc/modprobe.d/bonding.conf

You must now reboot the machine for the changes to take effect.
