Re: what is a supervisor module?

The supervisor module is the module that is the brains behind the whole switching operations. Its usually found in chassis based switches, nowadays, it handles everything, including routing and switching (older models had them separated.)

In the larger chassis, you can get redundant supervisor modules (for subsecond switchover and redundancy)
