Cisco SMB switch and Link Agregation
Posted on 2012-08-22
I obtained 2 Cisco SG 200-50 50-Port Gigabit Smart Switch Switches. I made Link Agregation (LAG1) on each of them in a way that I put 43-48 ports in LAG Channel (5 * 1000Mbit).
I merged them together UTP cables (43 to 43, 44 to 44, etc. ..), and both devices regularly see LAGs.
I made a test in a way that I have to first switch connect one PC to another switch second PC.
I launched copying 1.7 GB file from one PC to another, and it lasted 42 sec.
I took off UTP connection 43-47 ports and I left the only port 48 on both switches (1000 Mbit) and repeated the test, the result of the same.
Is that OK, or somewhere on the device there is an option which activates the LAG. Specifically, I'm expecting the difference in transmission time,
But it did not happen.
Where I'm wrong?
