We have three HP Comware switches in a triangle with each device being at default configuration after enabling Multi-Instance Spanning Tree (MSTP). We’ll be optimizing the network by adding load-balancing for MSTP and across 20 vlans and ... Read More
Link Aggregration Control Protocol (LACP) is used to combine multiple ethernet ports into a bundle. This bundle shows up as one port to spanning tree protocol (STP) allowing multiple connections to occur between switches without blocking. This protocol is also used to connect multiple server links to a switch ... Read More

For our example, we'll be using the network topology below.
The switches are in a triangle ... Read More
