Onload will monitor the underlying bonding configuration and state using netlink where this is supported by the OS or revert to the previous method when netlink is not supported. Polling parameters are now set through the cplane_server_params option via the onload_module parameters:

options cplane_server --bond_base_period=800options cplane_server --bond_peak_period=1600

The cplane_server parameters are in milliseconds.
