Nice video but you should refrain from using the term STP loop. STP is to stop bridging loops. Very seldom would a loop form due to STP unless there is a unidirectional link.

I know many people use this term but as Cisco professionals you should set a good example by using the correct terms.

Thanks Daniel for appreciating this Video. You made a very valid point that it’s always a Bridging Loop and our context here was the loop created due to STP failure and that’s why we usually use the term STP loop but as you rightly said, the best terminology should be Bridging loop created due to STP Failure. Point noted.

Thanks again and best regards,

Vinay, Vivek, Pradeep.

Do you have any video planned on different designs regarding caveats like not running L3 over the vPC and things like that? I know there are some very good sessions at Ciscolive365 as well.
