Summary

Why would you want to place device in L2FB?

  • You need to apply a critical Digital Vaccine (DV) update or policy distribution as absolutely fast as possible and want to eliminate any latency caused by the device.
  • You are experiencing a network problem and want to eliminate the device as the source.

What does L2FB do? L2FB bridges the two ports for a given segment so that traffic coming into the device immediately goes back out without going through hardware or software inspection.
