The discovered etherchannel connections are represented by the following classes:

  • AggregatePort — This class represents the etherchannel adapter in IP Availability Manager. It is defined as the logical grouping of network adapters.

  • AggregateLink — This class represents the logical links between AggregatePorts. During post processing, all the AggregatePorts instances are retrieved from the discovered topology. If the constituents ports of the AggregatePort are connected and the peer ports of those constituent ports are associated with AggregatePort, then AggregateLink is created between those two AggregatePort.
