VRRP scaling

Dear all,

Have we published limit on number of VRRP instances in Aruba controller. One of our customers

has configured 143 instances and is facing some issues.

I do not see any published numbers for that.  What are the issues that the customer is seeing?

Customer was using 130+ VRRP instances and around 8 instances were flapping in Backup controller apparently due to missed processing of the Hello packets (from Master) of those 8 instances.

Re: VRRP scaling

What switching infrastructure were the controllers connected to?

They claim that the 2 controllers were connected directly.

Re: VRRP scaling

Why in God's name are they using 143 VRRP instances?

Re: VRRP scaling

Yes, that was strange, we have advised them to stick to the QA attested maximum number of 64 instances on a M3/3600.

Re: VRRP scaling

this just doesn't scale. I highly recommend to read some networking fundamentals and design guides.
