stacking 2950

Hi, we have 12 cisco 2950T's stacked/trunked in a daisy chain fashion. I was told that this was not very efficient.

Would purchasing a 2960G and cascading the switches to it be better ?

thx jason

Re: stacking 2950

Your best solution for stacking is 3750.

In a word, yes.

Provided that you ensure that the 2960 is the STP root, and that devices are laid out logically - i.e. servers attached to the 'core' switch (2960).

This will mean that most traffic will flow in a logical manner, and also if your uplinks don't give enough bandwidth you could use EtherChannel to bond the two uplinks from each switch to the core...

If you can take the cost, a switch with better performance may be better (i.e. 3750 as Shanky says), but the most important thing in my opinion is a logical layout that makes best use of what you have..
