Dell Command Line Reference Guide for the S4048–ON System


Port Channel Commands

A Link Aggregation Group (LAG) is a group of links that appear to a MAC client as if they were a single link according to IEEE 802.3ad. In Dell EMC Networking OS, a LAG is referred to as a Port Channel.

  • The platform supports 128 port channels and 16 members per port channel.

As each port can be assigned to only one Port Channel, and each Port Channel must have at least one port, some of those nominally available Port Channels might have no function because they could have no members if there are not enough ports installed. But stack members can provide those ports.

NOTE: The Dell EMC Networking OS implementation of LAG or Port Channel requires that you configure a LAG on both switches manually. For information about Dell EMC Networking OS link aggregation control protocol (LACP) for dynamic LAGs, refer to the Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) chapter. For more information about configuring and using Port Channels, refer to the Dell EMC Networking OS Configuration Guide.
