I have a trading floor network built around 24 Catalyst 6000 switches. All switches have dual Supervisor 1As. I am interested in how I can configure faster failover between the sup modules.

Does anyone out there have any experience of this? I'd like to know the following:
1. What fail-over time is available with some config tuning?
