Spanning Tree

The Spanning tree protocol prevents loops and manages redundancy in a layer 2 network. Spanning tree instances and contiguous domains are analyzed for stability and consistency.

For each spanning tree instance a number of parameters are presented, such as virtual ports present in the instance, root bridge and its prioritypriorities, instance diagramdiagrams, number of users in the instance, and instance convergence rate.

Spanning tree details range from spanning tree domain, which is contiguously interconnected to spanning tree instances, through to individual spanning tree ports.
