This is a video on some of the “nerd knobs” that we get to play with in a traditional spanning tree environment.

I have done a full writeup on the topic that goes along with this video - you can view this video on that page as well.

Matt Oswalt

Matt Oswalt is an all-around technology nerd, currently focusing on networking, software development, and everything in between. He is at his happiest in front of a keyboard, next to a brewing kettle, or wielding his silo-smashing sledgehammer. He spends his days diving deep into the intersection of networking and software, and likes to blog about his experiences when he comes up for air. You can follow him on Twitter or LinkedIN.
