Have a question that I hope you can help with.
Have two 6500 switches that are directly connected via a GigE Link.
Running OSPF between the switches. At layer 3 the switches
are connected via a point-to-point connection.
I am considering two configuration options
1. Connect the switches using a L2 trunk and use virtual
interfaces for the point-to-point L3 connection.
2. Make the physical interfaces on the switches L3
(NOT Switch ports).
My question is which option is fastest to detect a fault (and recover) at L3
when the circuit goes down?
What is the difference in the times for the options?
Hope you can help.
