Q: Is 802.3ad Link Aggregation Control Protocol enabled by default?
No. In the default configuration, LACP is off. The port will not try to detect a trunk configuration and will operate as a standard, untrunked port.

Q: What is a dual personality port?
A dual personality port can be used as either an RJ-45 10/100/1000 port (IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T; IEEE 802.3u Type 100Base-TX; IEEE 802.3ab 1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet) or an open mini-GBIC slot (for use with mini-GBIC transceivers).

Q: What type of spanning tree implementation does the ProCurve Switch 2510-24 support?
IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol is supported, which is backwards compatible with previous Spanning Tree standards 802.1D and 8021.w.

Q: What is the default ProCurve 2510 spanning tree configuration?
IEEE 802.1s Spanning Tree is disabled by default.

Q: What advantage does implementation of IEEE 802.1s MSTP offer over legacy STP or RSTP?
The 802.1D and 802.1w spanning tree protocols operate without regard to a network's VLAN configuration, and maintain one common spanning tree throughout a bridged network. Thus, these protocols map one loop-free, logical topology on a given physical topology. This causes redundant links to be blocked; they are then available on a standby basis. With MSTP, each spanning tree instance can include one or more VLANs and applies a separate, per-instance forwarding topology. Thus, where a port belongs to multiple VLANs, it may be dynamically blocked in one spanning tree instance, but forwarding in another instance. This achieves load-balancing across the network while still providing fault tolerance through rapid, automatic reconfiguration if there is a failure in a network's physical topology.

Q: Are there any special compatibility considerations to allow MSTP to interoperate with legacy STP or RSTP?
IEEE 802.1s MSTP includes RSTP functionality and is designed to be compatible with both IEEE 802.1D and 802.1w spanning-tree protocols. Even if all the other devices in your network are using STP, you can enable MSTP on the 2510 switch. Also, using the default configuration values, your switches will interoperate effectively with STP and RSTP devices. MSTP automatically detects when the switch ports are connected to non-MSTP devices in the spanning tree and communicates with those devices using 802.1D or 802.1w STP BPDU packets, as appropriate.

For further information about configuring spanning tree, please see the ProCurve Switch 2510 Advanced Traffic Management Guide.

Q: What type of console cable does the 2510 use?
The 2510 switch uses console cable part number 5188-3836. The cable is included with the switch. This cable has a DB-9 connector on the end that plugs into the PC, and an RJ-45 connector on the end that connects to the switch's console port.

Q: What is the pinout of the 5188-3836 console cable?
The console cable uses a rollover style pinout.

Q: What kind of performance can I expect from my 2510?

Throughput 6.5 million pps
Switching Capacity 8.8 Gbps

Q: What is the size of the MAC address table?
8000 entries.

Q: Does the ProCurve 2510 Switch support routing?
No, the ProCurve 2510 is a Layer 2 switch.

Q: What is the use of the Locator LED and how do you activate it?
The Locator LED is used to identify a specific switch within a rack of identical or similar switches. The Locator LED is a blue LED and can be turned On, turned Off, or caused to Blink. The amount of time the Locator LED will remain On or Blinking is congifurable between 1 and 1440 minutes. The default time is 30 minutes. The "Chassislocate" command is used to control the Locator LED.

Q: How many trunks does the ProCurve Switch 2510 support?
The ProCurve Switch 2510 supports three trunks. It supports two 10/100 trunks of up to four ports each and one Gigabit trunk of two ports. These trunks can be configured as static or LACP trunks.
