I have a subnet at a site that is just about full. Its a C class (Eg 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0).
I have servers, workstations and printers in this subnet. I have thought of splitting servers into their own subnet (via a VLAN) but am worried about the performance implications of this. If i have to do inter VLAN routing will this reduce the bandwidth available (and increase latency) for the workstations to access servers?
The other option is to stretch out the subnet mask for the existing network (Eg. 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.248) but im already using the above network at another site (Eg 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0).
