I am having great difficulty with understanding the concept of TCN (Topology Change Notification) and Forward Delay
Does the TCN (Topology Change Notification) is sent as soon as a port moves from forwarding to block state or from block to forwarding state? In other words, immediately after the 20 second max age that corresponds to a root information time out?
Does the forward delay value (15) second correspond to the new aging time value of a bridge after it received a TCN?
How long does the bridge will used a 15 sec aging time?
Why are we saying that twice the forward delay is equal to the listening and learning period:
It make sense to me that a bridge waits for the max age before making sure that it has found the root but I do not understand why it has to wait for the last bridge to stop forwarding frames that are received on the previous topology? Waiting 20 second for the max age should be enough since aging time is 15. Previous topology should be reset as soon as the aging time time out?
Is there any relation between the fact that the forward delay is 15 second and the aging time that is set to 15 second after reception of the TCN.
I have some difficulties to understand the concept of the last bridge that hears about the change in the topology. Which bridge would be the last to hear about the topology change in the following topology?
HI, In the attached diagram from cisco site if we assume R101 and R102 are two DC having a layer 2 link and both are advertising same subnet (eg. 192.168.12.0/24) to the ISP i understand by using BGP metrics we can make one DC primary and other as se...
