It seems like these days we have more time to discuss.


We would like to have some input from the community about your approach
regarding some IX resources.


Backup ports: commonly the ISP has an aditional router connected to the
backup port, in a switch other than the one where the main port is
connected, with an additional configuration (another pair of IPv4/v6

Question: Do you permit balanced traffic between the main port and the
backup port? Or the backup port is allowed to be use only when the main port
is down?


Aggregated ports: The ISP has N x 1G or N x 10G ports connected to IXP
platform, same switch, LACP config.

Question: Do you treat aggregated ports as "one" port? E.g. 2 x 1G ports are
one 2G port? Or 2 x 10G ports are one 20G port?


Please share your experiences, keep safe and stay healthy.
