- Defined in:
A list of Spanning Tree Protocol modes. The difference between STP_MODE_TYPE_DISABLED and STP_MODE_TYPE_PASSTHROUGH is that the pass-through mode forwards spanning tree bridge protocol data units (BPDUs) received on any interface to all other interfaces, whereas the disabled mode discards them.
- STP_MODE_TYPE_DISABLED =
Disables Spanning Tree Protocol entirely.
- STP_MODE_TYPE_PASSTHROUGH =
BIG-IP will be transparent to spanning tree BPDUs , forwarding the BPDUs to all interfaces.
- STP_MODE_TYPE_STP =
The original version of STP.
- STP_MODE_TYPE_RSTP =
The improved version of STP, Rapid STP.
- STP_MODE_TYPE_MSTP =
The Multiple STP, VLAN-aware implementation.
