ifenslave is a tool to attach and detach slave network devices to a bonding device. A bonding device will act like a normal Ethernet network device to the
kernel, but will send out the packets via the slave devices using a simple round robin scheduler. This allows for simple load balancing, identical to "channel
bonding" or "trunking" techniques used in switches.

The kernel must have support for bonding devices for ifenslave to be useful.

a, all interfaces
Show information about all interfaces.

c, change active
Change active slave.

d, detach
Removes slave interfaces from the bonding device.

f, force
Force actions to be taken if one of the specified interfaces appears not to belong to an Ethernet device.

h, help
Display a help message and exit.

u, usage
Show usage information and exit.

v, verbose
Print warning and debug messages.

V, version
Show version information and exit.
If not options are given, the default action will be to enslave interfaces.

The following example shows how to setup a bonding device and enslave two real Ethernet devices to it:
