and MC-LAG is not what I want here.
From what I understand from the way it's described, MC-LAG is used if you have 2 or more switches and you have a server with multiple network cards.
Instead of using LAG/LACP from the server to ONE of the switches to have higher total throughput, you set one of the active server network interfaces on each switch to limit the number of hops (and bottle necks) to get to the server
So if I have 2 switches FS-A FS-B and a server S that has 4 network interfaces
if I LAG S -> FS-A then all devices plugged in all 44 ports on FS-A can share the 4Gb/s trunk (one port is capped at 1Gps but this is fine)
if FS-B -> FS-A with a single port, then all 47 devices on FS-B share a SINGLE 1Gbps connection to FS-A so there is a bottleneck for the NAS
if I MCLAG S -> FS-A and S -> FS-B then the ports on each switch will share a 2Gps max to the nas
Now, What i want is (and I've done this with other vendors),
S -> FS-A
FS-B [1234...] -> FS-A
All devices on FS-A can share 4Gps and All devices on FS-B can also share the 4Gps to the NAS.
This last option allows for the max utilisation of the ressources.
