Multiple NICs can also be configured to achieve redundancy (refer to Content Software for File Installation Guide, HA networking configuration section for more information) in addition to higher throughput, for a complete, highly available solution. For that, use more than one physical device and specify the client management IPs using the command-line option:

-o mgmt_ip=<ip>+<ip2>
For example, the following command will use two network devices for HA networking and allocate both devices to four Frontend processes on the client. The modifier ha is used here, which stands for using the device on all processes.
mount -t wekafs -o num_cores=4 -o net:ha=mlnx0,net:ha=mlnx1 backend1/my_fs -o mgmt_ip=10.0.0.1+10.0.0.2 /mnt/weka
