I am little bit confused about this. My friend proposed the scenario like given below using a single switch.
port 1 and 2 in the vlan 1
port 3 and 4 in the vlan 2
port 1: Machine A
Port 3: Machine B
port 2 (VLAN1 )--> Latency-Calculator/generator-Machine --> Port 4 ( VLAN 2).
this is without routing.
so when machine A communicate to the machine B, traffic passes from VLAN1 (port 2) to VLAN 2 (port 4). we have tested this one and it works fine.
I have just a single question, is there is any problem in this scenario when there are lot of traffic, any spanning tree problems or any known vulnerability. I want to know coz we are going to deploy in a very large scale and in the future if it is problem then this will be great loss.
Re: Cable from VLAN 1 to VLAN 2: Latency introduce
actually we have a different set of networks for each solution. and for each solution we have a test environment
For solution A we have deployed the 4 ASA 5540 FW's with 8 3750 switches with 2*2 gig LES, 4 lease lines with 4 3600 routers and lot of servers in 2 DC's
we want to create the test environment for that but donot want to spend the same amount of money as on solution A. so that's why we want to use only 1 single switch and to represnet lease lines and LES infrastructure, we want to create the lateny as present in solution A. Servers in a single vlan when communicate to other servers in the same vlan comunicate, they are switched in the hardware. so we are going to deploy the same vlan as the 2 vlans and introduce a latency box in between them to test the applications as they reside in the solution A. too complicated. This type of test scenario we are using for the first time and if is successfull then we will deploy more
