Configuring LACP—Quick Configuration

Use the link aggregation feature to aggregate one or more Ethernet interfaces to form a virtual link or link aggregation group (LAG). The MAC client can treat this virtual link as if it were a single link. Link aggregation increases bandwidth, provides graceful degradation as failure occurs, and increases availability.

You can use the J-Web Quick Configuration to add a new LAG or to edit or delete an existing LAG.

Note: Interfaces that are already configured with MTU, duplex, flow-control, or logical interfaces are not available for aggregation.

To access the LACP Quick Configuration:

  1. In the J-Web user interface, select Configuration > Quick Configuration > Switching > LACP.

    The Aggregated Interfaces list is displayed.

  2. Click one of the following:
  3. Click one:

Table 6: Aggregated Ethernet Interface Options




Aggregated Interface

Indicates the name of the aggregated interface.

Enter the aggregated interface name. If an aggregated interface already exists, then the field is displayed as read-only.


Specifies the mode in which LACP packets are exchanged between the interfaces. The modes are:

  • None—Indicates that no mode is applicable.
  • Active—Indicates that the interface initiates transmission of LACP packets
  • Passive—Indicates that the interface only responds to LACP packets.

Select from the drop-down list.


The description for the LAG.

Enter the description.


Indicates that the interfaces available for aggregation.

Click Add to select the interfaces.

Note: Only interfaces that are configured with the same speeds can be selected together for a LAG.

Enable Log

Specifies whether to enable generation of log entries for LAG.

Select to enable log generation.
