Here is my setup:
- each 4500 connect to both 6509 and both 6509s connect with etherchannel of 6Gb.
4500c -|-- 6509a (vlan61: st-root, hsrp-active)
|-- 6509b (vlan11: st-root, hsrp-stdby
6509s run hsrp.
4500 has two vlans-11,61
6509a is hsrp-active for all vlans, whereas 6509b is hsrp-standby for all vlans.
6509a is st root for vlan61
6509b is st root for vlan11
Question: Performance wise, is it better to have 6509b as HSRP-active for VLAN11 ??
I think so since 6509b is the first hop for vlan11 traffic. Am I on the right track ??
