Techniques are presented to avoid requiring network administrators to have Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) domain specific knowledge while still achieving a stable and high performing Layer 2 (L2) topology in their Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs). Configuring the STP is easily ignored since it is operable initially, but networks might run at a suboptimal efficiency as a result.
