Hash algorithm on Port channel

Hi, 

 

Can anyone help me understand hast policy on LACP configurations?

 

https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/bonding.txt

test 123.PNG

 

Scenario i have to interface bonded to form a Port channel ether1 and ether2

 

Question 1: about layer 2 hash

Doest it mean let's say we have aa.aa.aa, bb.bb.bb and cc.cc.cc mac addresses

 

(Source aa.aa.aa to Destination cc.cc.cc) send to ether 1

(Source bb.bb.bb to Destination cc.cc.cc) send to ether 2 

 

is my understanding correct? 

 

Question 2: about layer 2+3 hash

 

*does all of this need to be satisfied before sending it to an interface? 

*does layer 3 hash will not work on Layer 2 port channel? or it doesn't matter and still we be hash by the L2 port channel?

hash = source MAC XOR destination MAC XOR packet type ID
		hash = hash XOR source IP XOR destination IP
		hash = hash XOR (hash RSHIFT 16)
		hash = hash XOR (hash RSHIFT 8)
		And then hash is reduced modulo slave count.
