You didn't share any details on your configuration, but I will assume
you are using corosync.

The only supported bonding mode is Active/Passive (mode=1). I've
personally tried all modes, out of curiosity, and all had problems. The
short of it is that if you need more that 1 gbit of performance, buy
faster cards.

If you are interested in what I use, it's documented here:

I've used this setup in several production clusters and have tested
failure are recovery extensively. It's proven very stable. :)
