Hi,


Does someone know the maximum numbers of nodes that are allowed in a vlan according to cisco? Are the white papers?

The maximum size of the broadcast domain.


thx,

Hi,


I read somewhere that hosts per vlan should be like this...


1000 for "well behaved IP" -- hosts that just do ARPs, DHCP, etc. but no broadcast applications


500 for general IP with rational broadcast/multicast applications


200-500 for Apple, DECnet, CLNP -- assuming that hosts on the network


200 for NetBEUI
