Yes, port bonding is possible and should be 'invisible' to HBase.

Do you have Ganglia installed and if so, what do you see with respect to network traffic when
your large jobs are running?

It could be that the network isn't the bottleneck but a contributing factor.

(some of them quite large).  One of the things that I notice when I do different types of
map / reduce jobs over my table is that the network becomes a bottleneck.  Currently I am
running single gig Ethernet on this cluster, but it has 4 network ports.
