To optimize bandwidth utilization, F5 Networks recommends
that, if possible, the number of links in the trunk be a power of 2 (for example, 2, 4, or 8).
This is due to the frame balancing algorithms that the system uses to map data streams to links.
Regardless of the hashing algorithm, a trunk that has 2, 4, or 8 links prevents the possibility
of skewing, which can adversely affect data throughput.
After creating the trunk, you assign the trunk to one or more VLANs, using the same VLAN screen that you normally use to assign an individual interface to a VLAN.
