Comparing BPDUs

With the 802.1d protocol, Ethernet switches exchange BPDUs that contain four informations :

  • the Root identifier
  • the Cost to reach the root
  • the Transmitter identifier

The third information contains two parts: the identifier of the switch that sent the BPDU and the identifier of the port where the BPDU has been sent. Each switch uses a unique identifier for each of its ports.
