On linux it's really simple...

lacp_rate=

Specifies the rate at which link partners should transmit LACPDU packets in 802.3ad mode.

Possible values are:

slow or 0 — Default setting. This specifies that partners should transmit LACPDUs every 30 seconds.

fast or 1 — Specifies that partners should transmit LACPDUs every 1 second.

Since Windows 2012 Server,

Since Windows 2012 Server, Microsoft natively integrated the Load Balancing/Failover (LBFO) into the operating system.

Unfortunately, in an "802.3ad" configuration, the LBFO is fixed at Short Timeout (every 1 sec) and it cannot be changed.
As a consequence, we have an incompatibility with our Cisco Nexus 5000 to perform an In Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) because we need to negotiate a Long Timeout (every 30 sec).
To work around this problem, we passed by the new version of the Broadcom BACS or Intel ANS with latest drivers and not use the MS LBFO.

Extract page 8

Windows NIC Teaming always operates in LACPs Active mode with a short timer.  No option is presently available to modify the timer or change the LACP mode.
