SMLT only provides a Layer 2 redundency. Two links connnected to
Passport 8600 can provide Layer 2 load sharing for inbound and outbound
traffic if you have a lot of traffic from different clients to
different servers. But, becasue the source and destination MAC
addresses of two servers are fixed in a Layer 2 switching network, the
traffic probably always only pass through one link; which means, there
is probably only 1Gb bandwidth.

The server connected to Passport 8600 with SMLT will have 2Gb banwidth
in theory. I suggest you use Static LACP to link with SMLT of Passport
8600. After routing or swtiching, there is only 1Gb bandwith for client if
it is connected directly to Passport 8600 by using a giga port.
But if I have 2 servers, both connected with a SMLT to 2 8600 switches.
Will I then have 1 Gb between those 2 servers or 2 Gb?
