MLX4, 8 and 16 max per-vlan spanning-tree

Searching the speicifications of the various products I have only found data-sheets for MLX series specifying what STP versions are supported. I cannot find how many 802.1w per-vlan spanning-trees Brocade recommends/supports.

For instance, Juniper specifies a maximum of 253 per vlan spanning-trees for an EX4500.

Am I unable to find it because it does not exist? Or am I looking in the wrong places?

And if it does not exists, what can someone with a lot of experience on an MLX16 for example recommend?

Hi

     The Min is 1, the max is 128 and the default is 32.

To change the value use the command 'system max spanning-tree value' from the config term level.

Thanks

Michael.
