Hi I bought a LGS308 as it stated Link Aggregation support in a hope to get a bit more network performance out of my NAS. I believe I had set both ends up correctly. I set up an aggregation of 3 ports to the Synology and 3 ports to my iMac with the builtin ethernet and 2 thunderbolt Ethernet adapters. On port 8 it runs out to a TP-Link 4300 Router which is bridging to a Synology AC1900 Router over 5GHz A/N The Link Aggregation screen shows the following:
|Port||Port Type||Status||Auto Negotiation||Port Speed||Duplex Mode||Protected Port||LAG|
And the LAG screen shows the following:
|LAG||LAG Type||Operational Status||Active Port Members||Standby Port Members||LACP||OperationalLAG Speed||Operational Flow Control||Protected LAG|
|LAG 1||eth1000M||Up||GE2, GE3, GE4||Enabled||1000M||On||Protected|
|LAG 2||eth1000M||Up||GE5, GE6, GE7||Enabled||1000M||On||Protected|
I would have expected to see the Operational Flow Control to be 3000M? Is there something that I am missing with this setup?

I think you are missing how a LAG functions under LACP.
Example: If you have 3 gigabit ports in a LAG you get a Load Balanced total of 3 gigabit throughput but any single connection will get 1 gigabit.

I think you could test by starting 3 different downloads from the Synology at the same time from the iMac.
