I am looking at which is the best bonding mode for giagbit links for the 
servers. I have a choice of using the 802.3ad (mode4) or bonding-rr (mode0)
I would prefer to use mode4 but this will only give a single TCP 
connection 1Gbit of bandwidth, where mode0 will give multi Gbit of band 
width to a single TCP connection.

My question is, If i have 4 mirrored servers. when a AFR replicates data 
between servers, does it run multiple TCP connections concurrently to 
copy the data to all 4 servers at once, or does it do each server in turn.
