boadcast control in management vlan

Hi...

I faced a problem where the management vlan was down due to exessive broadcast caused by some fiber uplink going bad.

I can use udld but not sure whether it can be used where the uplink is UTP.

I am thinkung of having several mamangement vlans, instead o keeping all my switches in a single one.

Is that a good practise? Any other ideas?

Thanks.

Re: boadcast control in management vlan

You can enable UDLD with UTP. Creating multiple management VLANs depends on how much broadcast traffic is there within that vlan under normal circumstances, how many nodes are in the vlan, how many trunks are there, are there any hubs in use and a few other factors. It doesn't hurt to create another management vlan for management and the reason why many networks out there just have one management vlan is for simplification.

Pls. rate all helpful posts.
