SMB Multi-channel vs. Link Aggregation?

I’m making a few changes to my setup and am going to be running 2 10gig connections to my servers. Is it better to use link aggregation or SMB multi-channel?

In theory, some of my shares might work better as NFS but I think I can likely get by with all SMB shares if multi-channel is faster.


Hey @CapitalJD good to see you again!

So I would probably go SMB multichannel if you have need for single clients to have faster that 1GB/s.

Otherwise LACP would work great!

Thanks! I also found your video on this after I posted. It was really helpful. Sounds like multi-channel is the way to go!
