I have an old 2.4 kernel based linux device using NIC Bonding. Instead of having the NIC Bonding module build as a module and
modprobe'ed into the system, its compiled directly into the kernel. I'd like to modify the module parameters to add
mode=1 miimon=100 in order to get it to not use round-robbin packet sending, but all of the examples I'm finding seem to assume the module is not compiled into the kernel, or just don't seem to work for me.
So far I've tried modifying my
/etc/modules.conf file to try adding
alias bond0 bonding options bond0 mode=1 miimon=100 options bonding mode=1 miimon=100
Based on something else I found on line I've tried adding bond0.mode=1 and bonding.mode=1 to my kernel commandline in grub, but regardless, when I boot up and check 'cat /proc/net/bonding/bond0' I always see staring back at me this line:
Bonding Mode: load balancing (round-robin)
I've tried looking for a setting to change in
/proc but am coming up empty.
