      Description

      Problem:
      In order to scale network traffic for client connections and replication traffic, there are two options

      a) add a NIC
      b) swap out a 1Gig for a 10Gig Ethernet Card

      Case b) is already supported. However, to support case a) we would need to be able to specify different networks for
      – client connections (and failover of client connections)
      – replication connections

      Impact:

      This would impact
      – mongod would need to accept connections over more than a single interface
      – replSetInitate configuration would need the ability to specify a different ip/port for the replication traffic

      Other:
      Would need test cases for the client nic failover from the replication nic failover.
