Take a look at this:

Which of the following can lead to the contribution of LAN traffic
congestion? (Select all
that apply)
A. Too many hosts in a broadcast domain
B. Full duplex operation
C. Broadcast storms
D. Multicasting
E. Segmentation

Answer: A, C, D, F

Notice they say that Multicasting can contribute to LAN congestion but
looky here:

You are experiencing intermittent issues relating to congestion with
your network. What
are the possible causes of congestion on a LAN? (Choose all that
apply.)
A. A broadcast domain with too many hosts.
B. Full duplex operation.
C. Broadcast storms.
D. Multicasting.
E. Network Segmentation.
F. Low bandwidth.

Answer: A, C, F

No mention of Multicasting. Hummmm. They explain:

"D. Multicasting can actually alleviate congestion issues, as single
streams of information can reach multiple hosts at the same time,
instead of using a series of point to point connections."

Are the questions the same? Different? Opinions?

Thanks,

Pete



Re: Conflicting Answers on question about LAN Congestion
You are just using another one of the many asinine products trying to cash
in on the cert bandwagon.

Learn how this works - instead of trying to figure out what these 'self
test' peices of crap are trying to say....

Hey John,

I use all types of material to get ready for exams including my
workplace, books, CDs, forums, and yes practice tests. I think youŽll
find most people do the same.

But if you want it another way, here it is:

Fellow Certsearchers,

If you were asked if multicasting can be part of the congestion problem
of your LAN what would you say?


Thank you,

I'd say, "of course it can."

Re: Conflicting Answers on question about LAN Congestion
Great!

And would you say multicasting can help alleviate LAN congestion too?

Re: Conflicting Answers on question about LAN Congestion
Well the good news is that no one will ever know what a multicast is if they
are reporting congestion to you. Secondly unless you have a ton of
applications that use multicasting you'll never run into that issue. What
you will see commonly is too many hosts on one segment or subnet, chattering
nics, and the ever present speed/duplex mismatches.
