Stack splits are a commonly encountered failure for stackable systems within enterprise networks, where there is a possibility of multiple active stacks forming from the breakdown of a single stackable system. Proposed herein are techniques involving a management station-driven approach that provides for the ability to identify/enumerate stack splits and alert network administrators that appropriate actions to resolve failures can be taken. Further, techniques proposed herein may facilitate performing preventative actions by a network independently or/and in concert with a network adminstrator, in order to avoid network outages, chaos, and further network failures.
