STP has determined that the port can participate in frame metp according to the BPDU frames that the switch has received. An RSTP edge port is a switch port that is never intended to be connected to another switch.

Prevent from receiving BPDU. To enable BPDU guard: Also, RSTP can detect edge port and separate root port from edge port.

When there are two or more paths to the same destination, there is a danger of broadcast packets getting in to an infinite loop and hence causing congestion in the network. Disabled — the state when the network administrator has disabled the port from use.

Difference Between RSTP and PVST

Root guard allows the device to participate in STP as long as the device does not try to become the root. Figure Link Types. We can configure switch for STP and change the priority or make a switch as primary root: However, only one version can be active at any time.


But if STP enabled switches are employed, the link L3 is effectively blocked from transmitting any data. It also happens when a port discards frames received on the interface, discards frames switched from another interface for forwarding, learns MAC addresses, and listens for BPDUs.

Default priority of switch is and is multiple of between while, default port-priority in switch is and multiple of It is with reference to the Root Switch that all the other switches determine their best cost path. The delay in receiving BPDUs can cause problems like convergence time problems.

Varieties of Spanning Tree Protocols () > STP

It disables links which are not elements of the tree and leaves a single active rspt between two network devices. Its possible and recommended to manually select the root switch. However, before the link-type parameter is considered, RSTP must determine the port role. Network redundancy is a key to maintaining network reliability. Without vetween loop guard feature, the port assumes the designated port role. When a port is in the blocking state, it does not forward traffic, but it can still process received BPDU messages.

To facilitate the learning of the logical spanning tree, each switch port transitions through five possible port states and three BPDU timers. Thank you very much …. Dicference redefines the types of ports and their states. Figure Edge Ports. To manipulate the root-bridge election, assign a lower priority to the switch that should be selected as the root bridge for the desired VLAN s. The link type can determine whether the port can immediately transition to a forwarding state, assuming that certain conditions are met.


BPDU guard and root guard are similar, but their impact is different. Convergence is per-VLAN and is slow, like Sample Chapter is provided courtesy of Cisco Press. The spanning tree is determined through the information learned by the exchange of the BPDU frames between the interconnected switches.

Designated ports are normally in the forwarding state and forwarding traffic for the segment. There have been several implementations of STP. In this section, you will learn how different varieties of spanning-tree protocols operate. RSTP can achieve much faster convergence in a properly configured network—sometimes in as little as a few hundred milliseconds. To configure, simply add: You must manually reenable the port that is put into errdisable state or configure errdisable-timeout.

It means, we have to wait at least 50 seconds until fully convergence.
