To SLPP or to not SLPP
« on: May 01, 2010, 03:14:05 PM »
Dear all,

I just need advise on this topic.

I have four ERS8600 in a square arrangement with SLPP enabled as suggested in the recommendations for a routed core ( Rx = 5 on the primary switch cluster member and 50 on the secondary member on both clusters). Now I have to transport ELAN and TLAN across my network without routing them. I will, thus, end up with a mixed core. Should I enable SLPP also on ELAN and TLAN? Should I modify the Rx parameters on the core ports? Or other suggestions?

Hi emerenziano and welcome!

I was just looking over some forum threads and I see that I missed your post, I'm sorry about that.

You can route and bridge between you core without any issue. I personally don't run SLPP in every VLAN I only run it in my edge/closet VLANs and in my management VLAN. I would probably advise against running it in the ELAN VLAN since the CS1000 doesn't like broadcast traffic (it's been known to INI if it gets hit with too many broadcast packets).

Sorry again!
