I work in a CAD-intensive network with Cisco Catalyst 3560G switches. We have a rack of 5 switches that feed a floor of users and all the servers and all the feeds from the other 3560s on the 3 other floors. The 3560 are all GB and I have CAT6 connecting switch to switch.
How do I know that my setup is optimum? Should I spread the load of the servers to several different switches? Should I bring all the switches from the various floors to one switch or divide them among several? Any thoughts are appreciated.
