This IBM Redbooks publication describes some important networking concepts and industry standards that are used to support high availability on IBM System z. Some of the networking standards discussed here are VLANs, VLAN trunking, link aggregation, virtual switches, VNICs, and load-balancing.
We examine the various aspects of network setup and introduce the main Linux on System z networking commands and configuration files. We describe managing network interface parameters, assigning addresses to a network interface, and using the
