This is my first post here so be kind....
I have a switching topology question that has me troubled.
Basically I have 6 CODECS on a LAN with UDP Unicast video from each box, I have multiple clients viewing the video so around 700 Mbps throughput.
I have a Cisco SG30-10 Small business switch with a dedicated port for each CODEC, all traffic leaves the switch through one interface to a Firewall.
If i have this topology then I get some pretty bad loss on the viewing clients, if I change the topology so that each CODEC loops through its neighbour so only one has a link to the switch then all is well.
Obviously this will not do as a single failure will bring down the network. The switch has its default config and I am sure that the single link can handle the load.
Any and all thoughts welcome (within reason).
Many thanks in advance.
