Why should I use static link aggregation instead of LACP?

Question

Since the purposes of static link aggregation (static trunking) and LACP (dynamic trunking) are the same, why should I use static instead of dynamic?

Answer

LACP is mainly used to let ports create trunks dynamically. However, in most cases, administrators always know which ports will be used as trunking ports. Since the static trunking method avoids the overhead of cpu loading (without running a protocol), we strongly suggest users use static trunking instead of dynamic trunking (LACP).
