Max Vlan on 5300

The default max number of VLAN is 8, and i need to have 100 vlan.

The questions are:

- Why the default is 8?
- i can encounter some performance problem raising the limit to 100?

Re: Max Vlan on 5300


Maximum Vlans default to 8 to save more memory and other resources, thats why when you change the default from 8 to something else it requires you to reboot the switch for memory re-allocations and this kind of stuff.

Anyway the 5300 supports 256 including the default VLAN, and you should have no problem or any obvious performance difference.

Good Luck !!!
