Rerouting

The SNM rerouting process reroutes traffic around an affected node without causing congestion or losing messages. STPs use this process when the route to a specific endpoint is unavailable. SNM uses the Transfer Prohibited (TFP) message to advise all directly connected nodes of the lost route to the specific endpoint. This enables the other STPs to choose an alternate route to the affected node. When the links are restored, Transfer Allowed (TFA) messages alert the directly connected nodes that normal routing procedures can resume.
