I was looking to bond two or three NICs together to increase throughput. Now, this should be straight forward if done computer to computer, but since there are 3 computers involved which require higher bandwidth, I was going to put them into a a HP Procurve 1400-24G switch.
Since I'm not sure how switches work, I wasn't sure whether being a gigabit switch it should be capable of switching 3gbit of data between 2 computers or whether there would be some feature that would limit the effective transfer between 2 computers to only 1gbit regardless of the bonding.
Can somebody please confirm? Thanks.
