I am planning the network for our new offices this time utilising Cisco 3750X's (WS-C3750X-48P-S). The required port count has gone up and up so have had to procure some extra switches to bring the count to 8.
Now this is NOT a traffic heavy network, but rather just one with lots of patch ports everywhere due to being a flexible/multi use environment where we allow for different desk/layout conigurations. So we put ports everywhere.
I am planning to stack all 8 using Stackwise Plus which provides 64Gbit/s of ring bandwidth plus local switching. I have previously been aware of potential performance issues when running large stacks, but this may have been with the original stackwise or when people were running open loops.
Is there any key factor here that would make me want to break this 8 stack into a 2 x 4 config instead?
