We have this question come up from time to time where we come off one switch and build redundant fiber paths to another stand alone switch. Most of the times we will build a simple EAPS ring between the connected ports and make the far switch the master and move on. In the last year we have started just creating a simple LACP lag between these switches using L3-L4 for our algorithm instead of an EAPS ring. Without me breaking out the test sets and setting up a lab which one will fail over faster if a single link goes down? The LAG scenario or EAPS? For anyone that answers did you lab this up and test it?
