I’m new to Vyos and evaluating it for an application that requires maximum network availability. If we use L2 across four (or more) routers with mesh or box interconnect, we would need failover on the order of a second, and not 15 to 30. I realize that 99% of applications don’t need this level of performance.
The Vyos feature list explicitly states that RSTP is not supported. What are the options in Vyos for improving L2 failover performance?
- Feature request to include mstpd?
- Roll my own with mstpd for rstp/pvst?
- Some other protocol?
As far as I know none of the fancier protocols have a viable linux code base (SPB, Trill, etc)
