Adding a Port to an Existing LAG
The most simple LAG configuration is a single Port LAG, which configures the device on the Megaport side to run LACP on a single channel. However, this configuration doesn’t provide any added resilience. If Port capacity or traffic status requires resilience, you can add Ports to a LAG. For example, if traffic moves from development to production, you may require additional Ports.
When you add one or more Ports to a live LAG, they are automatically assigned the same location, speed, and Marketplace visibility as other Ports in the LAG.
To add a Port to an existing LAG
Log in to the Megaport Portal and choose Services.
Select a Port that is part of a LAG and click +Ports.
Specify the details for the new Port in the LAG.
- Port Name -– Specify an easily identifiable name for the Port.
- Choose your minimum term -– Specify 1 month, 12 months, or 36 months. Longer terms result in a lower monthly rate. By default, a rolling month-to-month term is selected.
