Meanwhile, the system with the higher system ID, being aware of the aggregation state changes on the
remote system, changes the aggregation state of its ports accordingly.
Because any port attribute or class-two configuration change on a member port may cause the
aggregation state of the port and other member ports to change and thus affect services, you are
recommended to do that with caution.
In a dynamic aggregation group, when the aggregation state of a local port changes, the
aggregation state of the peer port also changes accordingly.
Load Sharing Criteria for Link Aggregation Groups
In a link aggregation group, traffic may be load-shared across the selected member ports based on a
certain criterion or a set of criteria depending on your configuration.
You can choose one of the following criteria or any combination of them for load sharing:
