What criteria is used to determine when it is prudent to use VLAN configurations within a network? Also, what specifically will generate a great deal of broadcast traffic? If anyone knows of any white papers and guides that get down to the nitty gritty and address when to VLAN it would be a big help to me. Cisco books and course work are fine, but they do not tell you specifically what types of devices or systems generate a great deal of broadcast traffic, nor do they discuss what types of distributed data networks work well, or not so well in a VLAN environment. TIA
I have this problem too.
