Dear NetApp Gurus,
Would you please share your expertise on how the NetApp filer uses the 3 x 1G link aggregation. My production traffic was impacted yesterday when replication was enabled and working.
Thanks in advance & looking forward to hear from you soon.

Can you explain your setup in a bit of detail please? There are a few combinations of how you could have configured this.
Assuming you use a multimode VIF, that is a throughput build, so you have a three lane highway to send traffic.
If you were using single mode, (don't know if you can do this with an odd number of ports), this is a failover configuration, one active at a time.
Joining multimode from single modes, you bundle two ports for throughput and put one for failover...this needs planning as now you have half the original bandwidth.
