Hello everyone, I am simulating a fat tree topology with ECMP. When one
of my host sends an ARP request in broadcast, the packet is broadcasted
through all switches which creates more and more traffic because I have
no STP. My question is simple. What is the best way to get rid of these
immortal packets? I thought of using something similar to a TTL header
which would be decremented every time the packet hits a switch and
dropped when it gets to zero however this method seems a bit too
complicated to implement and I was wondering if there was a better, more
simple way to do so using OVS?
Thank you in advance.
