STP Monitoring

If you don't know what's happening with STP, you're eventually going to have unhappy users. Everyone has heard the story of a user that "just plugged something in" and the network went haywire.

If you knew what happened, and where, you could fix issues with the STP. TotalView's STP report includes topology details for devices, including their protocol, last change, root bridge, root cause, root port, and hold time.
