Demands on networking infrastructure are growing exponentially due to
bandwidth-hungry applications such as rich media applications and
inter-data-center communications.  In this context, it is important to
optimally use the bandwidth in wired networks that extensively use
link aggregation groups and equal-cost multipaths as techniques for
bandwidth scaling.  This document explores some of the mechanisms useful
for achieving this.

This document is a product of the Operations and Management Area Working Group Working Group of the IETF.
