Issue Description

The member intefaces of eth-trunk appeared that frequently  up/down , but eth-trunk is up all the time, and MSTP topology changed all the time.

Alarm Information


Handling Process

Set a fexed  STP cost for  eth-trunk
[HUAWEI] interface Eth-trunk 1
[HUAWEI- Eth-trunk 1] stp instance 2 cost 200

Root Cause

The member interfaces of eth-trunk's phenomenon of  up/down would cause the cost of STP change, and then  STP/MSTP would recalculate which caused topology changed.


We suggest to set a fixed STP cost for eth-trunk in the network with  STP /MSTP.
