Description: This lab exercise demonstrates configuring
spanning-tree protocol timers.
1. Enter into configuration mode on SW1
2. Use the command "spanning-tree vlan <vlan-id>
hello-time/forward-time/max-age <value> to configure the various
STP timers on the switch
3. Verify the configurations set using the command “show
spanning-tree vlan <vlan-id>”
i. Hello-Time : Determines how often the switch broadcasts hello
messages to other switches.
ii. Forward-Time : Determines how long each of the listening and
learning states last before the interface begins forwarding.
iii. Max-Age : Determines the amount of time the switch stores protocol
information received on an interface.
