I currently have 4 cisco 6006 switches (A,B,C,D) in a mesh network (except C & D not link together) and 3 Cisco 4510R switches (E,F,G) all links to C (Po1) & D (Po2). switch E,F,G do not interlink each other.
While I was doing a UAT test, I do a continuous ping from the client's side of G to the outside world. Everything goes fine when all equipments is up. But when I power down switch C, I found that sometimes I can ping but somwtimes it will show "request time out." I was wondering what went wrong to the networks because from what I understand, in such a mesh network, by right unstability should not be occurring. I do not know what is wrong and how should I go about with the triubleshotting.
Hope that you guys will be able to help me. Thanks
ok. Thanks a lot. But I had another inquiry. I had powered down switch C and observed for around 15min. The sequence of the ping is as follows:
ping (ard 5min) --> timed out (ard 20s) --> ping (ard 5min) --> timed our (ard 20s) --> and it continues the same pattern for the whole of 15 min (before i power on my switch C). So I was just wondering, is the above scenario normal?
I'm sorry that I do not know that whether load balancing was properly set on the the 6006 switches as the previous network engineer who design this network had left and did not leave anything behind.
I had attached the config & spanning-tree file below and I do hope that you will be able to spare some of your time and help me take a look at the config so as to alighten me whether I should add-in/out some additional commands to help me solve this issue of unstability.
