1) If there is a network topology like E1-R1-C-R2-E2, it is 3 hops between E1 and E2. Then what is NH (maximum unicast hops)?
I think NH is 3. But your manual says NH like this. I can't understand what you said.
NH (Maximum Unicast Hops)
Sets or reads the maximum number of hops across the network. This limit sets the maximum
broadcast hops value (BH) and determines the unicast timeout.
The timeout is computed as (50 * NH) + 100 ms. The default unicast timeout of 1.6 seconds (NH=0x1E)
is enough time for data and the acknowledgment to traverse approximately 8 hops. For 8 hops , NH is not 8 but 30(0x1E).
2) For 8 hops, you recommend NH=0x1E(30). I am not sure..
What is the formula between NH and hop number?
