We have inherited a ring topology with 12 switches configured with MSTP. Each switch is either 4 or 8 ports but in general most are 4 port with 2 fiber uplinks that form the ring.
We are getting a what appears to be a significant number of topology changes in the stats:
stats from switches show a high number of topology changes: 3185
I`ve looked at a few posts that suggest there is a maximum number of switches/bridges in a ring. Although the posts do relate to RSTP not MSTP.
I`m trying to find concrete primary proof that this is the case and to identify the maximum switches in a ring. It may that the maximum is also influenced by MSTP settings of which I have limited knowledge at present.
