Sample text

N 1 1 1 1 ... x 46 An "x" runs all the way down the diagonal of the matrix because no device talks to itself. The total number of boxes in the matrix is just N2. The number of entries along the diagonal is N, so there are (N2-N) links. But only the upper half of the matrix is important because each link is only counted once (the link from a b is included, but not b a, because that would be double counting). Since there is exactly the same number above the diagonal as below, the total number of links is just N(N-1)/2.

The thick line connecting D1 and D2 is a higher bandwidth link. Suppose the thin lines are 100Mbps Ethernet links, while the thick line is a 1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet link. Clearly the thick line is a better link to the Root Bridge than one of the slower links. So, the engineer sets the priority on this port so that, if there is a choice between what link to use, the switch always chooses the faster one. Having a link between D1 and D2 is important. Imagine what would happen if it were not present and the link between A1 and D1 failed.

The more paths available, the harder it becomes to find the best path. The more neighbors, the worse the problem of finding the best one to pass a particular packet to. A broadcast storm is a special type of problem. It gets mentioned frequently, and a lot of switch manufacturers include features for limiting broadcast storms. But what is it really? Well, a broadcast packet is a perfectly legitimate type of packet that is sent to every other station on the same network segment or VLAN. The most common example of a broadcast is an IP ARP packet.
