NP7 performance optimized over KR links

The NP7 processor has a bandwidth capacity of 200-Gigabit. If all of the FortiGate front panel interfaces are operating at their maximum bandwidth, the NP7 processor would not be able to offload all the traffic. Traffic passes to each NP7 processor over two 100-Gigabit KR links that are numbered 0 and 1. With default configuration, these two 100G links operate as a LAG. Traffic coming from front panel interfaces are distributed evenly across the LAG.
