I have a (probably stupid) question, but I need to know anyway.
We want to build an asymmetric network, a bunch clients with 100 MBit
connected to a Switch, whose GBit uplink is connected to a master.
Now if we're using STP on this, will it benefit from the firmware in the
GBit master or not? If STP is wrapped in TCP on the 100 MBit side it
probably wouldn't, but if it creates real STP packets it might.
Any comments on this situation? Has anybody tried something similar, with
what results? We need to broadcast data from the master and collect data
from all the clients quickly, and STP seems like a good idea to reduce
overhead and latency.
