  • MSTP
  • RSTP
  • Rapid PVST+
  • PVST+
  • STP

Explanation: STP and RSTP assume only one IEEE 802.1D spanning-tree instance for the entire bridged network irrespective of the number of VLANs, This can result in suboptimal traffic flow issues. PVST+ provides a separate spanning-tree instance for each VLAN configured. Rapid PVST+ provides a separate instance of 802.1w per VLAN, and MSTP maps multiple VLANs that have the same traffic flow requirements into the same spanning-tree instance but allows for more than one instance for dissimilar traffic flows.
