Confusion in time taken by STP to make a port in forwarding state
I am little confused my doubt is that STP uses 50 sec or 30 sec to make a port in forwarding state. But i don't know in which case it will take 50 and in which case it wil take 30 please explain in detail.
Like Houtan mentioned above it depends on the features you have configured but I think your question is more towards failure scenarios.
It depends on how "graceful" the failure is. If there is an unidirectional link failure or a cable cut failure the switch will wait its normal 30 sec hold + lis + learn but if you shutdown the port, the switch being a little bit "smart" about it will detect the shutdown and skip the hold timer.
