I would like to know if modifying the Hello timer on specific port could fix at least temporary our problem ?
We have a L2 link between 2 distant places and it seems the provider is dropping some traffic for a reason or another (they cannot or don't want explain to us exactly why since the bandwidth is not congested).
We think some BPDU are dropped and thus, our HP switch computes again and again STP topology disabling/enabling switch's ports and causing networks issues.
I'm no expert of STP and I know without perfect understanding of it, it is really tricky to tune. Since the topology modification are due to lack of BPDU from the root bridge, I want to try to allow more time waiting for this BPDU.
Since I have no lab to test it properly, I wonder if someone already try it or can point me over the right line of thought.
