I am considering different topologies to attempt at improving FTP upload speeds from many devices into one PC with Quad NIC.
Right now we use 802.ad on the PC (same IP address on all four ports). From the PC we connect two 1Gb Ethernet cables going to one switch, two more going to another switch. There are two more cables that interconnect the two switches, creating a redundant path.
If four uplink ports on each switch are configured with LACP, do you think that this is speediest connection, or can I get a quicker connection by using a different topology? Keep in mind that single IP address is a requirement.
