To enbale or not to enable flow control? that's the question
we have a HP4108gl switch. As i have a bit more time on my hands i thought i would look at the configurations of the key hardware devices. I have noticed that some ports are set to enable flow control and some not
What are the benefits of flow control and is it worth enabling or not.

Re: To enbale or not to enable flow control? that's the ques
Flow control manages the rate that information is sent between two devices, if one device starts sending packets at a rate the reciveing device can't handle due to load or whatever then you'll start getting network congestion.

I know is a really old thread so sorry for bring it back but thought better than starting a new thread...
I'm in the process of upgrading all our main switchs to HP Procurve stuff, 2650's and a 5400zl do i want to turn flow control on all ports or just certain ones?
