what if Rapid Spanning Tree is enabled in non redundant network


My question is staright, as Title, let me show you an examplestp.PNG

  As you can see there is no redundancy in the network, and Root bridge is last L2 switch, so in this case may question is.

- Will this can cause a poor data flow over LAN, ? I  have 100 switches total in my envoiroment and some of them are old as- cisco CE500 models, and they are elected as Root Bridge (Default).

but in my network no dual uplinks or redundancy formed. so will this cause any issue in network performance. ?????

You're posting in the IP Telephony forum in CSC, probably want to move your thread to the switching area.

the answer is pretty straight forward. If you have a network that is not redundant and has no loops, there simply cannot be a sub optimal path as there is only one path. so I cant see why running rSTP would cuase issues in the scenario above
