Link aggregation on VMWare ESXi vSwitch or bond interfaces on Check Point GW?

Hello,

 

currently we are implementing Check Point vSEC GW hosted on ESXi host with 2x10G interfaces to Internet and 2x 10G interfaces to LAN. We would like to bond the interfaces for load balancing, however I don't know if we should do the aggregation on VMWare layer in vSwitch or I should create 2 interfaces to Check Point GW VM and bond them there together. What do you think would give us better throughput? Thanks for suggestions. 

 

We will be using VMXNET 3 as driver for 10G vNICs.
