Working With Data Center Bridging Features in Oracle Solaris

Like LLDP that is described in Chapter 7, Exchanging Network Connectivity Information With LLDP, data center bridging (DCB) also involves information exchange with peers on the network. The information refers to configurations affecting the integrity of network packets especially in heavy traffic environments such as data centers. DCB enables efficient network traffic exchange by coordinating component configuration that relates to high speed traffic in these centers.
