I want to maximize the throughput of a data transfer between two servers. The copy will be made at the application layer using Robocopy.
To clear things up, please check my Visio schema of the network:
- SW1 to SW2 is connected through 10 gigabit Fiber Channel ethernet
- FS1 to SW1 is connected through 1 gigabit ethernet
- FS2 to SW2 is connected through 1 gigabit ethernet
I first idea I've come up with is to use LACP, so I could use two Gigabit Ethernet between each server and the switch. A collegue told me that LACP is for availability and not performance, so he reckon this solution will not work. Is he right? Do I have other options?
