MSTP and instances

L4 Transporter



So my reading says to me

don't put vlans on instance 0 .. seems like a good idea.


now how many instances can I have ?

cause I am thinking an instance is like a scoping tool.


I would want to put my WAN ports in an instance why would I want my STP re calced for all ports cause and ISP pulls the plug ?


So the question is how many is to many - for 2 reasons max allowed instances and how much cpu does it cost to run ?
