Paper Abstract

Currently, network administration involves repetitive and time-consuming tasks. Clustering enables network administrators to overcome hurdles when they attempt to manage their LANs. Clustering is proved to be a breakthrough for LANs. Under the cluster management model, all switches can be managed as a cluster based on a single IP address. A single command switch for each cluster would automatically discover and control all switches in a cluster, regardless of where they are located. Switch Clustering is implemented over the TCP/IP protocol. The hardware scheme is present in this paper. Then the cluster communication protocol is analyzed in detail. It involves CTP (Cluster Topology Protocol) and CMP (Cluster Management Protocol). At last we present two typical examples for Switch Clustering.
