I have an application going into a very large customer that has totally embraced 802.1q vlans. Instead of having static routes defined in the thousands of clients they will have across multiple subnets, they want to create a vlan per subnet so that no static route will have to be created for each client which will have 2 interfaces (one for general network access and one for my application). The question came up on the limitation of how many vlans i can define on a bonded pair of physical interfaces It seems that on some OSs, the limitation is 4096 but im not sure if that is a limit of 802.1q or just a limit of the particular situation that google came up with

Knowing what suse 11sp2 would be of great help and is there a kernel parameter defining it?
