Network Death Results

The most common problems arising from network congestion are intermittent connectivity and excessive delays—users must wait a long time for screens to refresh, users are disconnected from applications, print jobs fail, and errors result when trying to write files to remote servers. If the response of the applications is to retransmit, congestion could reach a point of no recovery. Likewise, if routing or spanning-tree loops are introduced as a result of packet loss, the excessive looping traffic could bring your network down.
