VLAN setup between 4 HP Procurve 2810-48G's
Posted on 2011-05-11
Hello experts. I want to setup a VLAN architecture to avoid broadcast traffic happening from one switch to another switch. We currently have 4 HP Procurve 2810-48G switches which have only a default VLAN setup, but I believe the broadcast traffic can be significantly reduced by VLANing each switch to the others.
So, without knowing a lot about the process of VLANing and only having read technical documents about the pros and cons, can someone tell me the basic setup I would need to consider along with the "gotchas" involved in simply making sure that any broadcast traffic on switch 1 won't be broadcast on switches 2-4 and vice versa for all switches involved?
We are on a subnet of 10.10.0.0/16 for all local traffic.
Thanks in advance for any help, thoughts or considerations in helping me.
