Which option is achieved by enabling FabricPath?
FabricPath is a technology used to provide Layer 2 multipathing in the data center network. It is an alternative to traditional Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) based networks and provides several benefits such as loop prevention, faster convergence, and improved scalability.
The correct answer to this question is C, "Layer 2 multipathing in the FabricPath network". Enabling FabricPath allows for the creation of a Layer 2 fabric that provides multiple parallel paths between devices in the network. This multipathing reduces the risk of network congestion and improves the overall performance of the network.
Option A, "decreases the mobility and virtualization" is incorrect. FabricPath does not decrease mobility or virtualization. In fact, it provides better mobility support by allowing virtual machine (VM) mobility without the need for IP address changes.
Option B, "loop prevention and mitigation without the use of Spanning Tree" is partially correct. FabricPath does provide loop prevention and mitigation mechanisms without the use of STP. However, it does not completely eliminate the need for STP. FabricPath still relies on STP to block redundant links in the network.
Option D, "single control plane only for multicast traffic" is incorrect. FabricPath uses a separate control plane for multicast traffic, called the Multicast Distribution Tree (MDT). The MDT is responsible for forwarding multicast traffic to all devices in the network that require it.
In summary, FabricPath is a Layer 2 multipathing technology that provides several benefits such as loop prevention, faster convergence, and improved scalability. Enabling FabricPath does not decrease mobility or virtualization and it relies on STP to block redundant links in the network.
