Configuring STP timers

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.
