Spanning-tree Timers

By daxm

Quick note about STP timers:
— STP timers are inherited from the root bridge. Therefore you only need to configure the timers on the root bridge and backup root bridge.
— STP timers are configured per VLAN. Therefore if you want to configure the timers for all the vlans you’ll need to use the ‘vlan 1-4094’ option.

So, the timers associated to the path to the root bridge are the ones that are honored not the timers configured on the current bridge.
