Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) is part of the IEEE 802.3ad specification for creating a logical link from multiple physical links. Because LACP and PAgP are incompatible, both ends of the link need to run LACP in order to automate the formation of EtherChannel groups.
As is the case with PAgP, when configuring LACP EtherChannels, all LAN ports must be the same speed and must all be configured as either Layer 2 or Layer 3 LAN ports. If a link within a port channel fails, traffic previously carried over the failed link is switched over to the remaining links . . .
