sfptpd supports PTP packets over bonded interfaces
in an active/standby mode. In addition,
supports bonding over LACP (802.3ad) bonding.
Bonding of interfaces on supported adapters employs the Linux bonding driver. Multiple ports can be included into a single bond where one port is selected as the active interface and all others are standby.
sfptpdwill detect which port is active and which ports are passive in the bond.
sfptpdwill discipline the high precision clock on the active port’s network adapter.
sfptpdwill discipline the clocks of passive ports from the active adapter’s clock.
- Via the bonding driver you can select the active port (and therefore clock).
- A bond can include non-PTP capable ports on a supported adapter.
sfptpdwill switch to software time-stamping when a non-hardware time-stamping port becomes active.
- A bond can include third party ports .
sfptpdwill switch to software time-stamping when a third party port becomes active.
- A bond can include any number of ports.
