    Bridging Loops & Its Consequences




      The above question was given in my school assignment. I need some help with it.


      I have already discovered one negative effect, which is unlimited usage of bandwidth, which consumes all of the available data since the data packet is in a constant loop. This makes the user unable to send any more data packets until he gets more data (i.e increase in bandwidth).


      I would appreciate it if I can get to know more positive or negative effects of  bridging loop.


      I have researched online but I have arrived at no answers. I keep bumping into the term broadcast storm but I am not sure how that links back to a bridging loop.


      Any help would appreciated.


      Thank you
