How to determine the actor and partner of an Eth-Trunk in LACP mode

The Actor and Partner of an Eth-Trunk in LACP mode are determined as follows:
The device with a smaller system LACP priority functions as the Actor. The System Priority field and the SysPri field of the Partner in the display eth-trunk command output represent system LACP priorities of local and remote devices respectively. A smaller value indicates a higher priority. By default, the system LACP priorities of devices are both 32768.
If system LACP priorities of devices at both ends of the Eth-Trunk are the same, the device with a smaller MAC address functions as the Actor. The System ID field and the System ID field of the Partner in the display eth-trunk command output represent system MAC addresses of local and remote devices respectively.
