Re: COnfiguration Suggestion - Etherchannel

I don't think there is really any performance difference in the two you've suggested. In one you're required to create a layer2 VLAN with a Layer3 hop on the VLAN itnerface, in the other you're just setting up a Layer3 only interface to the customer. (no vlans required) If you don't need a Layer2 connection to the customers network, then go with the Layer3 only option.I am building out a customer that needs more than 1000Mbps of sustained bandwidth. Because of the customer equipment, etherchannel was suggested as the means to do this (it is compatible with this customers equipment). I am running a 6509 with Dual SUP720's in IOS mode only (no cat software). It was pointed out that there are really two different ways to configure the switch - I guess my question is which is the best (lowest overhead, etc)? Hopefully someone out there has been down this road before.
