    STP vs RSTP


      Hi Techies,

      Can you guys please tell me differences between STP and RSTP.

      Why RSTP is better than STP( Why is it rapid) ?

      What makes discarding state better than blocking,disabled and listening in STP?

      What is the use of Backup and alernates ports?

      If any of you have a document to learn RSTP, please share it.
