We have setup where 2- 3750 switches are in stack but connected with single cable only.
sh switch stack-ring speed
Stack Ring Speed : 16G
Stack Ring Configuration: Half
Stack Ring Protocol : StackWise
Need to know what we are losing apart the redundancy of using 2 cables?
Will this have impact on network performance -- like speed etc? using single cable instead of 2 ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, that is a good idea, because if your have only one cable and that breaks, it can cause an outage.

Traffic BETWEEN the stack members will be twice as fast.
BTW, potentially might be good adjective unless individual flows are split between stack ports and/or you start to congest a single stack port.
