It's a standard and it's non-retarded as it wasn't concocted by sun.
will get you started with it.
We ran IPMP for a while. that just resulted in stuff being broken all the
time, and lots of reboots to unwedge botched up links. Even on the older
sparc machines (that I believe don't support LACP) IPMP always caused more
problems than it solved. It always errored out more often than ethernet
cables failed, NICs broke or ports on a cisco switch blew out.
After using LACP on the same machines, we forgot about all ever losing
links to machines. your switches need to support it, but any real switch
does, so that's not a problem.
IPMP is as jenky as those old putty colored metal boxes for switching
parallel ports between computers and printers.
